Bollywood's iconic actress Rekha, who also happens to be the daughter of Gemini Ganesan and Pushpavalli, has evinced her interest to watch the biopic of legendary actress Savitri, step-mother of Rekha.
Apparently, when Rekha initially heard about the making of biopic of her step-mother Savitri, she was apparently curious but very apprehensive. However, after the film is released and got rave reviews from all corners, Rekha is said to be very interested to watch the film. Rekha's sister Radha said to have informed the makers of Mahanati that Rekha is willing to watch the movie.
Surprisingly, Rekha had never accepted Gemini Ganesan as her father since he didn't marry her mother Pushpavalli, who was a Telugu actress. In fact, Rekha had skipped funeral of her father Gemini Ganesan. Rekha was shooting for a film in Himachal Pradesh.
Director Nag Ashwin, who made the biopic of Savitri, has not included about Pushpavalli or her daughters with Gemini - Rekha, Radha. Although Gemini hadn't married Pushpavalli, she is considered as his second wife since he said to had affair with her even before his marriage with Savitri.
