Mahanati, the prestigious biopic on legendary actress Savitri garu is in top gear with progress of production part.
Despite Savitri garu acted in innumerable milestone films, Maya Bazar gets a golden lining. Her performance in Sasirekha character deserves to be called an encyclopedia of acting.
Even today, we find many inspirations of Maya Bazar reflected in new releases and such is the influence this magnum opus had on Indian cinema.
Finally, Mahanati team has come to that one epic moment of shooting Maya Bazar scenes.
Director Nag Ashwin, art director Shivam in consultation with senior art director Thota Tharani erected a massive Maya Bazar set in Ramoji Film City exactly replicating the carvings, curtains and every property.
More amazing is to see Krish reprising director Kadiri Venkat Reddy (KV Reddy), Pellichoopulu fame Tharun Bhascker playing assistant director Singeetam Srinivas Rao while Nata Prapoorna Mohan Babu as Ghatotkacha SV Ranga Rao is another goose bump moment.
“We can’t wait for audience to watch our Mahanati. We are honored to have Singeetam garu on our sets, felt nostalgic to have got transported to that era.
“He was in complete awe with art work and was surprised to see a younger Tharun Bhascker in his self character.
“Singeetam garu also delivered an emotional speech which sent entire team in tears and speechless,” said the source from Mahanati production.
