One of Indian cinema’s versatile actors, Madhavan is sharing screen space with Naga Chaitanya in the upcoming movie, Savyasachi. This will be his first full-fledged role in a Telugu movie. Earlier, he was seen making a guest appearance in Om Shanti, which hit the silver screens in 2010.
Maddy had confirmed on Instagram recently that he had wrapped up shooting for his portions: “It’s a Film Wrap for me on @Savyasachi and what a fantastic time I had. Many a film wrap I have seen but none like this .. thank you so much for the Love @mythriofficial and Chandu Mondeti and the entire unit. I wait with bated breath for the next time .Wish you more Blockbusters like #rangasthalam ..God Bless (sic).”
Savyasachi is directed by Chandoo Mondeti who had directed Naga Chaitanya in Premam earlier. Premam, which was a remake of the hit Malayalam movie of the same title, also had Naga Chaitanya play the lead role. The film was a huge success and the duo is attempting to taste another victory at the box office with Savyasachi.
It was initially rumoured that Madhavan plays the antagonist in Savyasachi, but sources from the film’s camp clarified that it was not true and that he plays a completely different role.
Nidhi Agarwal plays Naga Chaitanya’s love interest in the film with Madhavan and Bhumika Chawla in important roles. The others in the star cast include Vennela Kishore, Dishita Sehgal, Rao Ramesh, and Thagubothu Ramesh.
The film is scheduled for release on June 10 and the team is working towards this deadline. J Yuvaraj has cranked the camera for Savyasachi while S Rama Krishna and Monika Niggotre have done the editing. Touted to be a romantic action entertainer, the film’s stunts have been choreographed by Ram and Lakshman.
Madhavan was recently offered a role in the Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan starrer Simmba, the Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster Temper, but the actor had to turn it down due to his shoulder surgery, after which Sonu Sood bagged the role.
