An acid test for Keerthy Suresh
The actor awaits the release of the biopic Mahanati, which sees her playing legendary actor Savitri
Keerthy Suresh faces the test of her acting career as the stage is set for the release of Mahanati tomorrow. The 25-year-old actor, who was shattered by the debacle of Agnyaathavasi, has shed her girl-next-door image and has undergone a significant transformation to step into the shoes of yesteryear diva Savitri in Mahanati, a biopic directed by Nag Ashwin.
Despite some initial criticism and uncanny comparisons to veteran actor B Saroja Devi, Keerthy has succeeded in making an impact with her looks as the legendary actor in the film. The stakes are high because her performance in her last film was unanimously slammed by the critics and the audience alike, and Keerthy is left with no option but to make a strong comeback to consolidate her position in the industry. The million dollar question is, will she be able to live up to the expectations and prove a point to her detractors this time around? We will find out soon enough.
