Keerthy Suresh starrer Mahanati has always been lauded as the best film ever by the actress, which stands true as it paved the way for her first-ever National Award. The film focused on the life of the late actress Savitri and shed light on various occurrences in the actress’ journey that many did not know about.

In a deleted scene from the movie, which was released on YouTube a while ago, we can see a young Rekha meeting her father, Gemini Ganesan for the first time at the latter’s home. The scene features a handsome Dulquer Salmaan personifying the late actor along with Keerthy Suresh.

The deleted scene features Keerthy Suresh’s Savitri being questioned by her daughter Vijaya on why Rekha calls Gemini Ganesan her father. This leads her to talk with Dulquer Salmaan in the movie and speak about how she should not grow up without a father. Interestingly, if you pay attention to the scene, we can see DQ holding a book titled, “Marriage and Morals,” which seems like an ironic detailing by Nag Ashwin for the movie.

Furthermore, the scene shows a young Rekha and her mother visiting Gemini Ganesan’s residence for an occasion. The conclusion depicts Rekha hugging her father for a moment.
