Samantha Akkineni plays the role called Madhuravani, who along with her colleague Vijay Antony, plated by Vijay Devarakonda, piece together the life of the great female actor, who dominated the Indian celluloid for about three decades. From the teaser, we can understand that Madhuravani stammers while speaking. "So so proud all the very best dear Keerthy ..," tweeted Samantha.

We also get a glimpse of Dulquer Salmaan, who has essayed the role of iconic movie star and Savitri's husband Gemini Ganesan in the biopic. Mahanati is also being made in Tamil as Nadigaiyar Thilagam.

The biopic is an ambitious directorial venture of Nag Ashwin, who made an impressive debut with Yevade Subramanyam. "Hers is a soul like no other. Hers is an era like no other. Here is a teaser for a no other...," he wrote on his Facebook while sharing the teaser.

The shooting was wrapped up just a few weeks ago and the filmmakers have confirmed Mahanati will hit the screens on May 9.
