The verdict is out. Keerthy Suresh has portrayed Savitri in such a way that this will be remembered for a long long time.
The actress says that playing Savitri was not easy. Even when the project went on floor, Keerthy Suresh has a feeling that this film will be massive. Now the film has released and Keerthy is in awe.
Keerthy prepared for this role by watching Savitri's films. Nag Ashwin sent her footage of Savitri's films and he separated scenes as happy, dramatic and comic ones. Keerthy saw Maya Bazaar as they had to perform scenes from this film for Mahanati. She learnt a lot she adds. Despite all this she did not imitate Savitri. She did it her own way.
