The makers of Mahanati have disclosed the release date of the film on December 6 to commemorate Savitri’s birthday anniversary.

Since Mahanati is a biopic on actor Savitri, the makers felt that disclosing the release date on her birth anniversary would be apt. And for all those interested, the trilingual will be out at the theatres on March 29. Along with the release date, the makers also released the logo of the film in video format.

It came with the dialogue “Adi priydarshini vadina, aa petika terichi chuste, andulo evari priya vastu valaki kanipistundi,” which has made the project all the more intriguing. The video has turned out to be a massive success as it garnered 1.7K views in just 25 minutes. Well, this proves that the expectation level for Mahanati is very high.

Directed by Nag Ashwin and produced by the prestigious banner Vyjayanthi Movies, the film will be released in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam. While the Telugu version has been titled Mahanati, the Tamil version is Nadigayar Thilagam. Keerthy Suresh plays the female lead in the movie and she will be seen playing Savitri while Dulquer Salmaan would be seen as her husband and actor Gemini Ganesan.

The story would be told from the perspective of a lady journo and Samantha has been roped in to play the role. Others in the star cast include Vijay Devarakonda and Shalini Pandey of Arjun Reddy fame, Prakash Raj as filmmaker Aluri Chakrapani, Mohan Babub as SV Ranga Rao and Krish. Mickey J Meyer is composing music for this venture with Dani Sanchez-Lopez cranking the camera. Being a biopic on the legendary actor, it will showcase Savitri’s illustrious career and her rise and fall, which eventually led to her untimely death at the young age of 45.
