It is well known that the NTR biopic is a star-studded project with the best of actors in the star cast. While N Balakrishna will be playing the role of his late father, the film star and former chief minister of Andhra Pradesh NT Rama Rao, another son in the family will be joining the star cast to play his father.
Reports from Tollywood are that Kalyan Ram has joined the star cast of the prestigious project and will be playing his dad N Harikrishna, the eldest son of NT Rama Rao and Basavatharakam. The actor is happy to be playing the role and is delighted to join the sets of the project, which is spearheaded by his uncle Balayya.
The shooting of the NTR biopic went on floors early last month and is progressing at a good pace. The star cast also comprises Vidya Balan, Prakash Raj, Murali Sharma, Rakul Preet Singh and Kaikala Satyanarayana in pivotal roles. 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 as the current Andhra chief minister and NTR’s son-in-law N Chandrababu Naidu.
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 shooting of the NTR biopic went on floors early last month and is progressing at a good pace. The filmmakers intend to release it for Sankaranthi next year and are working hard to meet the deadline. One of the biggest reasons to have this biopic released for Sankaranthi is that the election code of conduct will come into force later that month and it will not be possible to release the movie until the elections.
