It has been reported earlier that legendary actress Savithri’s biopic is being made. This prestigious project is being directed by Naga Ashwin. Any heroine would be more than happy to grab this opportunity of playing the role of Mahanati Savithri, who has ruled the industry for years. Samantha has been the first choice for this role and the makers are said to have approached her for the same.
However, surprisingly Samantha has declined the offer and her reason seemed genuine. We all know that the legendary actress Savithri used to have a curvacious figure and not the typical slender one. The lead in the film is expected to buk up for the role to reprise the original actress. But this is not what Samantha wants as she is planning to get married soon. She didn’t want to do any experiments with regards to her physique and hence she backed of the project. The other choice for the role is Nithya Menon and makers will have to see if she can be roped in for the role.
