The first look poster of the NTR biopic which was released a few days earlier has caught the attention of film buffs. The poster which has N Balakrishna as his father NT Rama Rao, has gone viral among their fans.

The NTR biopic, one of the most awaited biopics in the Telugu film industry, has an impressive line-up of stars in the cast. The latest to join the star cast is Dr Bharat Reddy who will be seen playing NTR’s elder son-in-law Daggubati Venkateswara Rao. It will be a very important character in the film as Daggubati Venkateswara Rao was instrumental in forming the party along with NTR.

The biopic, which is about the life of the legendary actor NTR who eventually went on to become the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, has NTR’s son and actor N Balakrishna playing his father on screen. Bollywood diva Vidya Balan has been roped in to play NTR’s wife Basavatharakam in it

The star cast also comprises Prakash Raj, Murali Sharma, Rakul Preet Singh and Kaikala Satyanarayana in pivotal roles. It has been finally confirmed that Rakul Preet Singh will be playing the legendary actor Sri Devi in the biopic. NTR and Sri Devi had shared the screen space in about 14 films and it cemented the latter’s career in the film industry strongly.

The biopic is bankrolled by N Balakrishna along with Sai Korrapati and Vishnu Induri. Director Teja was initially roped in to direct the film but he opted out for various reasons and now the project is helmed by J Krish. The film will be a Sankaranthi release next year and the team is working hard to meet the deadline.

Reports are that Rakul Preet Singh, Keerthy Suresh, Mohan Babu, and Sumanth are playing Sri Devi, Savitri, SV Ranga Rao and A Nageswara Rao respectively. Rana Daggubati will be seen playing the current Andhra chief minister and NTR’s son-in-law N Chandrababu Naidu.

The film’s shooting began last month and is currently underway.
