Keerthy Suresh within no time attained immense stardom in the industry. She cast a magic spell with living in the role of legendary actress Savitri in Mahanati, a biopic on the star. Keerthy Suresh speaking to scribes raved about her heroes.

Pawan Kalyan


'While my mother Menaka starred in Chiranjeevi's Punnami Nagu, I did Agnyaathavaasi with Pawan Kalyan. When I came to know that I am doing my third film with Pawan Kalyan, I jumped with excitement. I learned a lot from watching Pawan Kalyan's films. I came to know why people call him Power Star after starring with him. After the film, I fell in love not only with his acting but with his personality. I would love to share screen presence with Pawan Kalyan if I get the opportunity once again"


" When I got an opportunity in Nenu Local, I got scared when my sister told Nani is known as Natural Sar and his performance will be natural. During the shooting, I used to wonder how Nani is able to do difficult scenes with ease. Nani used to ask all my questions patiently during the shot breaks. When the makers of Mahanati planned to cast me in, Nani called me and told ' You will get good recognition. It will be good if you do the film'. I should thank Nani for winning a national award for Mahanati. I repay his gratitude'


I was a big fan of Surya since my school days. My mother starred in few films opposite Surya's father Sivakumar. Whenever my mother used to talk about those films, I used to remark 'Look. One day I will do a film with Surya'. Those words became true with Surya's Gang. Surya concentrates on his scenes in the sets. If we ask doubts, he will give good advice. Surya is always at the forefront in encouraging co-stars"


I always remember my first film Nenu Sailaja. Ram's acting and dance are a wonder. He is very energetic in the sets. He observes his acting after the shot. Even if he has to do the scene again, he will do without any irritation. He is as particular about his health as his acting. I learned a lot watching him while doing the film.

Dulquer Salmaan

While everyone was praising me for my performance in Mahanati, I was bowled by Dulqer's performance. Though I did few films in Telugu, it was his first in Telugu. I used to think about how he would act. However, he put his life for each scene. He won the appreciation of all and made me wonder whether I could match him with his natural performance.
