Right from its release, ‘Mahanati’ aka ‘Nadigayar Thilakam’, the biopic of legendary actress Savithri, has been facing charges from a few quarters.
But the latest one is quite strange. The granddaughter of K V Chowdary has claimed that her grandfather has been shown in a positive light in the film.
Stating that this is in contrast to what he actually was, she further said that it was Chowdhary who indirectly made Savitri an alcoholic.
She also said Savithri’s daughter Vijaya Chamundeshwari deserting her mother during her last days.
Recently, Dr Kamala Selvaraj, daughter of Gemini Ganesan, came down heavily on the makers of the movie for portraying her father in a bad light.
However, Vijaya Chamundeswari backed the biopic and said that the film would not affect her relationship with Kamala Selvaraj.
