Hyderabad: The iconic actress Savitri’s illustrious film career has been immortalized in a new book titled ‘Savitri Classics,’ which was unveiled at a grand event held at Hyderabad’s N Convention. Megasta Chiranjeevi and his wife Surekha had the honor of launching the book.

The event was graced by several eminent personalities from the film industry, including actors Brahmanandam, Murali Mohan, and Tanikella Bharani, who attended as special guests. The event was meticulously organized by Savitri’s daughter, Vijaya Chamundeshwari. The book ‘Savitri Classics’ has been penned by author Sanjay Kishore.

During his speech at the event, Chiranjeevi lauded Savitri’s unparalleled talent and reminisced about his personal experiences and close bond with the legendary actress. He emotionally expressed, “I feel that the purpose of my birth has been fulfilled with the release of the book ‘Savitri Classics’ dedicated to Mahanati Savitrigari. My journey as an actor has been deeply influenced by her.”

Chiranjeevi fondly recalled his early days in the industry, sharing an anecdote from the film ‘Punadirallu’ in 1978 where he had the opportunity to act alongside Savitri. “I was awestruck when I first met her. Despite a minor mishap during a dance sequence due to wet floors, Savitri praised my spirit and predicted that I would become a good actor in the future,” he shared.

He also mentioned another film, ‘Prema Tarangalu,’ in which he portrayed Savitri’s son, but unfortunately, he didn’t get another chance to work with her before her demise.

Vijaya Chamundeshwari, Savitri’s daughter, also shared heartwarming memories of her interactions with Chiranjeevi. Recounting her first visit to Chiranjeevi’s home, she was deeply moved by his gesture of coming downstairs despite his leg injury. She said, “Chiranjeevi’s integrity is what I admire the most. His thoughts, words, and actions are always in harmony.”

She further added, “Chiranjeevi’s genuine respect and affection for my mother are truly commendable, and that’s why we believed he was the perfect person to launch the ‘Savitri Classics’ book. .”
