The films director Nag Ashwin compiled all the important scenes of Savithri in a pen drive and handed over to Keerthy for mentally preparing herself as Savithri. Keerthy also read a book on the life of the Pasamalar actress.
Veterans like Sathyaraj, Radha Ravi, Jayabharathi and Savithris daughter Vijaya Chamundeswari told me interesting information about Savithri. Only later, came to know that Savithri and I have a few common interests like car racing, cricket, and swimming. I used to scare kids by folding my eyebrows and Savithri amma has done it too, said Keerthy.
Dulquer Salmaan plays Gemini Ganesan in the film and Samantha plays a journalist named Madhuravani. Nadigaiyar Thilagam is all set to release on May 9.
