Handsome hero Dulquer Salmaan is all set to essay a crucial role in highly expected biopic of Savitri, 'Mahanati'. As we know, Keerthy Suresh reprises the role of Savitri in this film. Dulquier will play the role of Savitri's husband Gemini Ganesan in the movie.
Gemini Ganesan was one of the leading heroes in 1950s and 60s in Kollywood. Savitri loved and married to Gemini in 1955 in spite of it being a second marriage to Gemini Ganesan. It was also rumoured that Gemini Ganesan was responsible for Savitri's woes in real life. As such, Dulquer's role turns out to be a crucial one in the film.
Top heroine Samantha will be seen as a journalist while Anushka essays Jamuna's role in this biopic. 'Yevade Subhahmanyam' fame Nag Ashwin is directing this movie. Currently the film is being filmed on a brisk pace.
