The new Tamil-Telugu epic-bio-pic Mahanati throws unshed light the relationship between legendary actress Savitri and Gemini Ganesan. Late Gemini Ganesan was Rekha’s father.
In Mahanati, Tamil megastar Dulquer Salman plays Gemini Ganesan. And Rekha is curious to know what her screen father looks like. A source close to the actress discloses, “When Rekha heard about the project she was curious but discreet in her inquiries. But now when the film is out she has let it be known to the film’s producers through her sister Radha that Rekha would like to see the film.”
During his lifetime Gemini Ganesan was never close to his daughter Rekha. Gemini Ganesan had three wives. Rekha’s mother Pushpavalli was Gemini’s second, albeit unofficial, wife.
