Nithya Menon in Savithri Biopic
If at all the reports of director Nag Ashwin planning to meet talented actress Nithya Menon with the proposal of roping her into the title role of ‘Savithri,’ the most ambitious upcoming film, then this is really a good choice. In fact, the biopic on Savithri generated decent buzz in film and trade circles because Maha Nati Savithri is a household name in Telugu states and many of us are aware of ups and downs in her personal and professional life.
After ‘Yevade Subramanyam,’ the deliberately taken big gap by Nag Ashwin meant for locking the final script should pay off. Apparently, many heroines names including Vidya Balan from Bollywood are considered but the final vote from many including those from production banner Vyjayanthi Movies was in favor of Nithya Menon.
Telugu cinema is lacking in talented female artists. Every time we look upon Northern Bollywood or deep South Kerala and Tamil Nadu for heroines. Anyways, Nithya Menon is worth winning this offer if the deal gets locked soon.
