The makers of Mahanati have approached Jr.NTR and Akkineni Naga Chaitanya to play the roles of Senior NTR and ANR in the film Mahanati. Both the actors have apparently rejected the proposal and hence the makers had checked out all the other possible opportunities and even approached Nani to play the role of senior NTR. Even Nani hesitated to play the role on the screen and has opted out of the project.
With this, the makers of Mahanati hit the roadblock but it looks like they have finally got a solution to the problem. The makers are now planning to go digital and insert some scenes of NTR and ANR from their original movies. There is a chance that the makers might digitally create NTR and ANR in the film.
Keerthi Suresh is playing the role of Mahanati Savitri in the film. Samantha, Vijay Devarakonda, Prakash Raj, Shalini Pandey and others are a part of the project. Nag Ashwin is the director of the project.
