Savitri committed a crime 

Savitri committed a crime 

'Mahanati', the biopic telling the life story of Savitri, has made a huge money at the box-office.  Its share is estimated to be Rs. 42 crores, which makes it one of the biggest hits among female-centric movies in India.

The legendary actress has won the sympathy of her fans and the current generation youngsters for meeting with a tragic fate.  However, Savitri's crime against the law hasn't been condemned even though Nag Ashwin portrays it in the film (in a sympathetic light).  

"The fact that she didn't suffer any qualms in evading income tax and in investing in benami properties unmistakably underscores that she was not immune to our unhealthy national trait of non-compliance of tax laws," says one Bulusu S Murthy.

Bluntly put, Savitri did commit crimes!
