Telugu Industry’s nostalgic flick ‘Mahanati’ which is the biopic of the greatest actress that ever lived is to hit screens on 9th of May and there is excitement in the air.

Added to this is the new revelation of the makers about the runtime of the film. The screen time of ‘Mahanati’ is confirmed to be 176 minutes, which is almost three hours long.

There were a few doubts about the effect of the runtime on the audience but the makers have assured that the movie will show the entire lifetime of the legendary actress right from her childhood and it is only just if the film had a longer runtime.

Looks like the film is following the trend of lengthier runtimes. After the success of ‘Rangasthalam’ and ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’ both of which that had longer showtimes, it might just become the new decree of the industry.
