Ever since director Teja walked out of the NTR biopic, which he had been working on for the past several months, there have been various speculations on who would get the opportunity to direct it. Well, on the eve of the birth anniversary of NT Rama Rao, his son and actor N Balakrishna made the important announcement through an audio. Putting an end to all rumors, he revealed that Krish Jagarlamudi has been entrusted with the project and he will be donning the director’s robes. The director is currently working on the Bollywood film Manikarnika which has Kangna Ranaut in the lead.

Being Balayya’s pet project, he is leaving no stone unturned to get this biopic the best cast and crew. There have been reports that Balayya may go on to direct the biopic himself but the star is keen on concentrating in acting and leave the rest to an able director. Incidentally, he is co-producing the film along with Vishnu Induri and Sai Korraputi.

The prep work for this biopic in fact began a couple of years ago and a lot of research has gone into it. Sources in the know say that Balayya wants to include several unknown facts about his late father and has been discussing it with some of his colleagues and friends in the industry and politics.

The shooting of this film is expected to begin soon and an official word about the rest of the star cast will be out soon. There have been reports about the team being in talks with Rana Daggubati to play the current chief minister of Andhra and NTR’s son-in-law N Chandrababu Naidu while Bollywood diva Vidya Balan may be playing his wife Basavatharakam. The biopic is expected to hit the silver screens early next year.
