Keerthy who remained silent finally responded to Jamuna’s criticism. She said she has the talent to play the role of Savitri. She said ” I didnot give green signal for the project just like that. I thought a lot and considered the pros and cons and only after getting to know everything about Savitri, I gave green signal. I trained a lot and studied various books on Savitri and also met her daughter Chamnundeswari to know about Savitri’s mannerisms. At that time she told many things about her aunt. I also watched numerous films of Savitri and only after the filmmakers got fully satisfied, I decided to star in the film”
