Savitri's daughter disagrees with Alamelu's
Does 'Mahanati' show Gemini Ganesan in a degrading manner? The answer is a big 'Yes' if you ask the daughter of Gemini Ganesan's first wife Alamelu. The answer is a 'No' if you ask the same question to Savitri, Gemini's second wife.
Recently, Kamala Ganesan (Alamelu's daughter) went on record saying that her father stands portrayed negatively in the biopic. She claimed that he never forced the habit of alcohol consumption on Savitri.
To this charge, Vijaya Chamundeswari, Savitri's daughter, says it's indeed true that her father (Gemini) never caused the addiction in her mother. However, she disagrees with her stepsister Kamala's assertion that 'Mahanati' degrades Gemini. "Where does it do? Please tell me so that I can respond," she asks.
