The biopic of legendary actress Savithri – ‘Mahanti’ that stars Keerthi Suresh, Dulquer Salman, Vijay Deverakonda and Samantha Akkineni is set to be released on the 9th of May, which is a Wednesday.

We usually see movies hitting screens on Fridays as they are believed to collect the most in the following weekend and sometimes they might be released on public holidays to attract more crowd.

But surprisingly, the makers have decided to release ‘Mahanati’ on a Wednesday and there is a significant reason behind this. ‘Mahanti’ which is being produced under the ‘Vyjayanthi movies’ is known for its all time blockbuster ‘Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari’ which was released on May 9th 1990 which was also a Wednesday but managed to create a huge storm in the box office.

So the makers have decided to adhere to this sentiment and release ‘Mahanati’ on a Wednesday with high expectations of getting a response as huge as that of ‘Jagadeka Veerudu Athiloka Sundari’.
