Shalini Pandey in Savitri biopic

The Arjun Reddy fame actress has officially joined the Mahanati team

Published: 11th September 2017

It's official: Shalini Pandey of Arjun Reddy fame is playing an important role in Nadigaiyar Thilagam (Mahanati in Telugu), a biopic on legendary actress Savitri. Sources say that she may play the role of yesteryear actress Jamuna, who was a very close friend of Savitri's. Though hers will be a minor role, it's being said that it forms a very important part of the story. 

Sources say the actress had signed the dotted line for Mahanati even before Arjun Reddy got released. "She joined the sets on Monday and the production unit is filming scenes involving her and Keerthy Suresh (who plays Savitri) in Palakollu, Andhra Pradesh," adds the source. Directed by Nag Ashwin, this Tamil-Telugu bilingual also stars Samantha and Dulquer Salmaan in pivotal roles.
