Keerthy Suresh starrer Mahanati is headed to the Shanghai International Film Festival. The film was a biopic on actor Savitri.

This movie gave me chills! She is so talented!

Director Nag Ashwin took to Twitter and wrote: “Privileged to take our Savitri garu to China. Quite confident that she will steal their hearts as well.”

The film has been titled Mahanati – The Great Actress for its Chinese release. Released amid great hype last year, Mahanati went on to be a box-office success.

Mahanati stirred up a box-office storm; it made nearly Rs. 50 crore.

Mahanati, which also stars Samantha Akkineni, Vijay Deverakonda, Dulquer Salmaan, Rajendra Prasad and Shalini Pandey among others in key roles, had a simultaneous release in Tamil as well.

Dulquer played Gemini Ganesan in the film, which was dubbed and released in Tamil as Nadigayar Thilagam.

A week after its release, the entire team of Mahanati was invited to the Secretariat and felicitated by the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, N Chandra Babu Naidu, who was moved by the film.

Congrats to the team!
