Nadhiya was one of the most wanted heroines during her heydays as a heroine. The actor took a break from her career post marriage and is back to the filmdom after several years. She staged a comeback as character artiste quite some years ago and has been bagging some prestigious offers. Her role as the Power Star Pawan Kalyan’s Aththa in Attarintiki Daredi won her accolades.

And now, she has been offered a role to play in the NTR biopic. Reports are that the team has approached her to play the iconic politician Indira Gandhi, the former Prime Minister of India, who was assassinated by her bodyguard. Now, this character is pivotal to the plot of the NTR biopic and the team wants a performance-oriented actor like Nadhiya to play the role. Nadhiya is yet to give her assent.

Further, the team is scouting for senior artistes to play Akkineni Nageswara Rao and PV Narasimha Rao as well apart from a host of other actors and politicians. An established actor and an able statesman, NTR forayed into politics by launching his own political party the Telugu Desam Party and became the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

His son N Balakrishna will be playing NT Rama Rao in his biopic with Teja donning the director’s robes. According to reports, a lot of research is going into this project, as Balayya wants to include several facts and instances that happened in his father’s life that has gone unreported. NTR’s fans will get to know a new facet of the able leader through this biopic, say sources.

The groundwork for it is currently on with the team looking for a suitable heroine to play NTR’s wife. Reports are that software is being used to pick out a heroine who has the facial features of NTR’s wife and they are yet to zero in on the actor.
