Telugu movie Mahanati success meet event held at Hyderabad. Celebs like Keerthy Suresh, Vijay Devarakonda, Swapna Dutt, Priyanka Dutt, Nag Ashwin, Sai Madhav Burra and others graced the event. Nothing had prepared Keerthy Suresh for the impact of her latest release "Mahanati". The film and the tragic story of the iconic actress Savitri's downfall has taught Keerthy plenty about life. "It wasn't easy playing Savitri. Her life was so eventful and so short. I learnt the value of family and friends. The entertainment industry can isolate you. I will never make the mistakes that Savitri ma'am did in her life and career," Keerthy said. The film, directed by Nag Ashwin, traces the ups and downs in the personal and professional life of the late iconic southern cinema actress Savitri. It is a blockbuster.

"Audiences seem to have taken to the film in a very big way. Of course when I agreed to do 'Mahanati', I knew we were on to something special. But nothing had prepared us in the 'Mahanati' team for this kind of impact. We're literally flooded with praise and compliments. It is something I've not experienced before. Not to this extent," Keerthy said.
