The legendary biopic of actress Savitri ‘garu’ has hit the screens and the team received an overwhelming response where many theatres saw people giving standing ovations at the end of the film and almost everybody left with wet eyes.

Many industry biggies have praised the young director for the amazing job and one of them was director Sukumar who wrote a personal letter to Nag Ashwin after watching the movie.

He wrote, “I have watched the movie and felt like calling you immediately but before that a lady came up to me and asked me if I was the director. I said yes and she hugged me and cried. “You have shown our Savitri amma beautifully… thank you so much” she said and I couldn’t bring myself to tell her that I wasn’t you.”

He stated that there were no words for him about the experience and he was in tears when he saw the lady’s overwhelming reaction and he signed his letter off as Sukumar (but Ashwin for a few seconds).
