Nithya Menen Finalized For Biopic of Savitri

Yevade Subramanyam director Nag Ashwin has been planning a biography drama based on the life of late legendary actress Savitri.

After considering various names, Nag Ashwin felt Nithya Menen is the apt choice to play Savitri in this biopic. He has approached Nithya Menen who has agreed to be a part of it, but on few conditions.

Nithya Menen demanded the director not to focus much on the dark side of the actress’s life for commercial benefits. She suggested the director not to take the commercial route in the process of adapting Savitri’s life story into a movie. 

Also she has suggested the name of Sai Madhav Burra as the dialogue writer, as Nithya is a fan of Burra’s (dialogue writer for Malli Malli Idi Raani Roju) work.

Nithya may not be as tall as Savitri, but she got the talent and beauty to reprise the role of the legendary actress. Of late Nithya has not been getting roles that do justice to her abundant talent.

She is very lucky to have bagged this biopic, which would surely give her a chance to put her abilities to the ultimate test.
