The biopic traces the life of Savitri through the years, and the whole cast and crew, right from Dulquer to Samantha are all praise for Keerthy’s performance.
At a press meet in Chennai, the actress said, “When I was first offered the role, I wasn’t sure if I could do justice to it. Playing the role of a legendary actress with a lot of responsibility.” Apparently, Keerthy watched numerous films of Savitri, and discussed a lot with Nag Ashwin to get into the skin of the character, and finally, when she began shooting, she left a lot of people shocked with her transformation.
“It used to take me 30 minutes to just get the eyebrows done and the whole make up took over 2.5 hours , prosthetic makeup took over 4 hours. After doing all this, it was hard for me to even move my mouth. I was on liquid diet for several days on the set,” the actress said. The film will release in Tamil as Nadigaiyar Thilagam.
