Keerthy Suresh's power-packed performance in Mahanati (Nadigaiyar Thilagam in Tamil) is the talk of south Indian cinema. Right from veteran actors to young guns are raving and openly admitting on social media about her innocent, yet restraint and mature act as legendary Savitri Amma.
In an author-backed role, she has not only scored in emotional and breakdown scenes, but also in smaller moments and has undoubtedly captured everyone's heart. Actors, directors and bigwigs like SS Rajamouli, Nagarjuna, Mohan Babu, Mohanlal, Junior NTR, AR Murugadoss, KTR and many others praised Keerthy's extraordinary act.
We all know that Kamal Haasan is a big fan of legendary actress Savitri and he was one actor who had the opportunity to act and interact with her. Kamal Haasan recently met Keerthy Suresh who reprised Savitri’s role and appreciated her solid performance.
“Happy and fortunate to get the blessings from @ikamalhaasan sir on the occasion of #NadigaiyarThilagam release. Thank you sir”, tweeted Keerthy and posted a pic with Kamal Haasan.
When Kamal Haasan turned producer, he wanted to give the first cheque to Savitri as she was going through financial problems and was hurt to meet her at her tiny house in Anna Nagar. In various interactions, Kamal said: “My success and failures are nothing compared what Savitri garu faced in her life”.
