According to a leading daily, the highly ambitious NTR biopic—which features Balakrishna in the lead—may be made in two parts rather than a single film. Apparently, director Teja has been discussing the matter with political personalities and they feel that NTR was such a charismatic figure that one film can’t do justice to his life.
“Teja met several filmy, political and business personalities who are close to the late actor during the scripting stage and has gathered ample information about him. He felt it would be great if he gets the opportunity to convey the entire subject in two parts. The director has already started planning things accordingly,” added a source
This is a developing situation and it will be worth watching what happens next.
In case you were not aware, the NTR biopic was launched a few days ago amidst much fanfare. At the launch event, Teja had said that he was a big fan of the mass leader and hopes to do justice to his life story.
“Everybody knows I’m a huge fan of NTR. I consider myself extremely lucky to have landed this opportunity. I’ll try and give my best efforts. NTR’s story is so vast; it’d take six films to encompass everything in it. We’ve tried to encapsulate everything into one film and I hope we will do justice. We’re targeting Dussehra festival release,” he had said.
Interestingly, the makers have approached Vidya Balan and Paresh Rawal to essay pivotal roles in the film and they are likely to give the nod soon. While Vidya has been offered the role of NTR’s wife, Rawal is likely to play a character based on former Andhra CM N Bhaskara Rao.
