Riding high on the success of Jai Lava Kusa, actor Jr. NTR recently launched his untitled project with Trivikram.

Director Trivikram Srinivas and Jr NTR will be teaming up for the first time in their careers and this has created a high expectation level among movie buffs.

If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, NTR might team up with director Satish Vegesna, as Trivikram's project might take time to hit the sets.

Producer Dil Raju who met Jr NTR recently and narrated the subject very briefly. If everything goes as planned, the film might go to the sets after Sankranti next year, and be helmed by Script writer-turned-director Satish Vegesna, who was catapulted to a league of his own after Shatamanam Bhavati.

NTR and Dil Raju had already worked together for the movie Brindaavanam in 2010 in which Kajal Aggarwal and Samantha played the female lead, which became a smashing hit.

Meanwhile, Trivikram who is currently camped in Europe for Pawan Kalyan's 25th PSPK25, tentatively titled as Agnatavasi, has obtained the rights of another novel that had enthralled Telugu readers way back in the 80s. 

However, there is no clarity if Trivikram has acquired the rights of the novel for his upcoming film with Jr NTR.

Last month, Jr NTR said he doesn't have the courage to ever play his grandfather Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao (NTR), the legendary Telugu actor and politician, on screen.

A biopic on the thespian is on the offing. Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has already announced a film on the former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister.

Asked if he would star in the biopic on his grandfather, Jr. NTR told IANS: "I don't have the courage. It's not that I can't do it but I just don't want to attempt".

While Varma is making the biopic from the perspective of NTR's widow Lakshmi Parvathi and has titled it "Lakshmi's NTR", actor Nandamuri Balakrishna wants to showcase the story of his father from a different standpoint.

Jr. NTR says he has no objection whatsoever.

"The day my grandfather left the family and went to serve the people (join politics), he became a priced possession of the state. I don't think anybody can stop anyone from making a film on his life. All are free to do and each one would interpret his story differently," he said.
