Reports about Teja walking out of the NTR biopic surfaced some days ago and raised various speculations about who would direct N Balakrishnaâ€™s dream project. While sources in the tinsel town suggested that Balayya may go on to direct the film himself, it now appears that director Krish has been roped in. The director is in talks with the filmmakers and an official announcement is on cards.
Reports that Krish would direct the biopic surfaced a couple of years ago but for some reason the project fell into the hands of Teja. However, differences of opinion cropped up between Teja and Balayya that the former decided to call it quits.
Being Balayyaâ€™s pet project, he not only plays the title role in it but is also co-producing the film along with Vishnu Induri and Sai Korraputi. An extensive research has gone into the biopic with Balayya planning to include unknown anecdotes about the late chief minister of Andhra Pradesh and thespian NT Rama Rao. Apparently, the film will begin with NTRâ€™s short stint at the government office in Chennai before joining the film industry.
There are also reports of the Bollywood award winning actor Vidya Balan being roped in to play NTRâ€™s wife Basavatharakam. She will be joining the sets of this biopic in July this year. Further, Rana Daggubati is also in talks to play N Chandra Babu Naidu in the film.
With NTRâ€™s birth anniversary falling on May 28th this year, there are huge expectations that major announcements regarding this film will be made. Well, the wait is not too far off, NTRâ€™s fans are waiting eagerly to know more about this biopic.
It may be mentioned here that Tollywood is currently under the biopic fad with a biopic on the late chief minister of Andhra YS Rajasekar Reddy, the freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy and wrestler Kodi Ramamurthy being made.
