Keerthy Suresh and Dulquer Salmaan starrer Mahanati is achieving new milestones at the overseas box office. Apart from crossing the million mark in USA, the biographical drama is performing phenomenally well in the circuits of Australia< New Zealand and United Kingdom. It seems the biopic actress on legendary actress Savitri has managed to attract a huge chunk of audience in the cinema halls.

Lead actress Keerthy Suresh, who portrayed the central character in the film received rave reviews for her extraordinary performance in the film. Right from her look, to her gestures and jewellery, the makers worked really hard on every detail. Designer Naveen Sangli of L Bajrang Pershad Jewellers says that he along with his team spent eight months to finalise the right jewellery pieces for “Mahanati”, a biopic on legendary actress Savitri. Seventy jewelleries were customized with 35 pieces recreated by 15 ‘karigars’ to create the looks from 1950 to 1980. “A team of five hand artisans was put to meticulous work to reinvent the classics. Jewelleries in gold, kundan and diamonds were recreated in same old designs and finished with the antique look.  About 15 ‘karigars’ (weavers) worked on 35 pieces exclusively for eight months after almost six months of study and research and probing into the actress’s life story,” Sangli said in a statement.
