Keerthy Suresh, who’s carved a good place for herself with back-to-back hits courtesy Bairavaa and Remo, is currently busy shooting for her first women-centric film – the Savitri biopic – where she’ll be essaying the role of legendary South actress, Savitri Nissankararao. Samantha Ruth Prabhu is also playing a pivotal role in the film, which is titled Nadigaiyar Thilagam in Tamil and Mahanati in Telugu.
The production team is currently shooting those portions of the film, which depict Savitri in her younger days, and as everyone who’s seen the actress’ work knows, she was quite plump in her younger days. So, Keerthy has decided to go the extra mile and gain weight for the role instead of just using prosthetics. This has seriously impressed the makers of the film as it’s quite rare for an India actress to willingly gain weight for a part, considering how they’re always under a microscope for their body image.
We applaud Keerthy’s efforts, and hope that the Savitri biopic brings her the recognitions she desires as an actress.
