It recently came to light that a biopic featuring Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Keerthy Suresh was being made on legendary Indian actress, Savitri, whose career spans more than three decades across four film industries. However, it came as a surprise when it was revealed that Keerthy would be essaying her role while Samantha’s role in the film titled Nadigaiyar Thilagam in Tamil and Mahanati in Telugu was unconfirmed despite her being the senior actress.
Well, Samantha’s role has finally been revealed and it’s modeled after another yesteryears actress, Jamuna, who was close friends with Savitri, but had a falling out later due to a misunderstanding. Like Savitri, Jamuna’s filmography, too, cut across Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, and Kannada film industries.
