Biopics are the most happening thing in Tollywood this year with many of them lined up. It all started with Mahanati which was a biopic on yesteryear iconic actor Savitri. Directed by Nag Aswhin, Mahanati had Keerthy Suresh playing the titular role and turned out to be a blockbuster hit. There is another biopic in the making on actor turned politician N.T.Rama Rao which will be directed by Krish Jagarlamudi. NTR biopic will have Nandamuri Balakrishna playing the titular role besides producing the film. The film is all set to go on floors this month with the makers prepping up for the first schedule. The biopic will portray the lie of NTR from his cinematic entry till he became the Chief Minister of the then Andhra Pradesh. NTR biopic will also show many veteran actors like ANR in the plot and this has led to a speculation about who would portray the role of ANR.
While this is happening, buzz in Telugu film circles is that the makers may try to rope in Naga Chaitanya to play ANR in NTR biopic after the actor garnered a lot of attention with the portrayal of his grand father in Mahanati. Although these reports are yet to be confirmed, news has it that the makers may think of approaching the young actor to play ANR in the biopic who would have quite a few scenes in the plot. Well, one can only wait and see if this materialises.
According to reports, Rana Daggubati will be seen playing NTR’s son in law and current chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, Nara Chandrababu Naidu, in the biopic which is an exciting news for the fans of the Nandamuri family. While Rana Daggubati and the makers are yet to confirm this development, sources in the film circles reveal that the discussions have been completed and Rana Daggubati will soon sign the dotted line.
