We had already reported that three filmmakers – Teja, Puri Jagannadh and Deva Katta – were in the race to direct the highly anticipated NTR biopic with his son Nandamuri Balakrishna in the titular role. After months of contemplation, Teja got the golden ticket to helm NTR’s biopic.
Hindupur MLA and actor Nandamuri Balakrishna said that the biopic that deals with the story of legendary actor and politician NT Rama Rao, will start to roll from 29th March. Today morning at Velagapudi assembly, during the media interaction, Balayya announced the start date of this upcoming biopic. It is also heard that the makers are planning to release the film on the occasion of Sankranthi 2019. Balayya said, “There is no connection with elections, politics and NTR biopic. This upcoming biopic is not targeting any elections. We wants to bring only NTR’s life and time closer to the young generation.” It is heard that couple of heroes from Nandamuri family will be part of this biopic.
Teja is a huge NTR and MGR fan and the fact that he recently made a political drama Nene Raju Nenu Mantri starring Rana Daggubati and Kajal Aggarwal, makes him the perfect choice for the project. Balakrishna will step into the shoes of his late father and the biopic will mark his debut as a producer.
