Actor Nithya Menenâ€™s look as Savitri in the NT Rama Rao biopic has been recently revealed.
The biopic on the legendary actor and leader NT Rama Rao is getting made with director J Krish helming it. The shooting of this ambitious project began in July this year with a stellar star cast including N Balakrishna playing NTR.
On the eve of Diwali, the makers have released a poster in which the famous song sequence from Gundamma Katha is being recreated with Balakrishna who is essaying NTR's role and Nithya Menen as Savitri.
It is well known that Savitri and NT Rama Rao shared screen space in several films during their heydays as hero and heroine and have come out with blockbuster hits. Therefore, it is natural that Savitri would be an indomitable character in his biopic.
The makers have recently finalised the title and it is Kathanayakudu. N Balakrishna will be seen playing his dad NTR in the film, and it will have Sumanth playing Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Vidya Balan as NTRâ€™s wife Basvatharakam, and Rana Daggubati as N Chandrababu Naidu. The others playing pivotal roles in Kathanayakudu are Prakash Raj, Keerthy Suresh, Rakul Preet Singh, and Mohan Babu. MM Keeravani is composing music for this venture with Gnana Shekar VS cranking the camera and Arram Ramakrishna editing it. The biopic is bankrolled by N Balakrishna along with Sai Korrapati and Vishnu Induri.
The film will be released in two parts as â€“ NTR Kathanayakudu and NTR Mahanayakudu â€“ highlighting both his film and political career. While the first part will be out on January 9th to cash in on the Sankaranthi holidays, the second part will be released on January 24th as a Republic Day weekend release and is produced jointly by N Balakrishna along with Vishnu Induri and Sai Korrapati.
