Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao’s biopic is one of the most highly-anticipated films of 2019 and actor Nithya Menen’s first look from the film was released on Monday on social media. She plays legendary actor Savitri in the film.
Nithya took to Twitter and wrote, “Proud to present to you, my first look as Savitri amma … 🙂 A poster from the iconic song in ‘Gundamma Katha’…” The film also stars Rakul Preet as Sridevi and the actor’s first look was also released in October on social media. Initially, Keerthy Suresh was expected to play the role of Savitri, after Mahanati. However, the actor backed out citing date issues.
