Nag Ashwin on Mahanati

“The film is very honest. Whatever was going on in that period is what we have tried to reflect. When she was younger, there was a certain mood and a certain way she behaved and the way the world was around her. When she became successful, how was it… And when she was in a sort of spiral, how was she and how the world was around her. That way, there’s no purposeful cinematic liberty in Mahanati. We have not forced any unnecessary things because there were enough highs and lows in her real story. We just had to space it out correctly. There was no need to add any heroism to it,” Mahanati director Nag Ashwin told IANS.

Mahanati is a tribute to Savitri, says Keerthy Suresh

“We know Savitri amma’s story and I was sceptical about doing justice to her acting. I was also concerned that my imitation of Savitri amma’s scenes shouldn’t be perceived in a wrong manner. But Nag gave me a lot of confidence that I’d be able to pull it off. And he also ensured that we were not portraying it in a wrong way. In fact, this film is like a tribute to actress Savitri. After I joined the team, I was really happy to be part of it,” Keerthy Suresh told India Today.
