Vidya Balan to play NTR’s wife in former Andhra CM’s biopic

According to a report in a leading daily, noted Bollywood actor Vidya Balan may play superstar Balakrishna’s wife in the highly ambitious NTR biopic. Talking about this, source said that she has indeed been approached, however, nothing has been finalised yet.

“She has shown an interest to play Basavatharakam’s role but it is not yet confirmed,” added the source.

The source added that  Vidya has expressed some doubts about the script and the makers are currently addressing those

“The actress has expressed a few doubts and the makers are addressing those. They hope she confirms  to do the film,” said the source.

If this works out, the  NTR biopic will mark Vidya’s Tollywood debut.

Interestingly, Vidya was previously offered the lead role in the Malayalam film Aami but things did not work out. Talking about her not doing the film, director Kamal had said that it was a ‘blessing’ for the film.

“Had she played the role, sexuality would have crept in. This is something I didn’t pay attention when I initially approached her. Madhavikutty was known for writing boldly about female sexuality, which is still considered a taboo subject,” he had added.

Let us hope that things fall into place this time and Vidya gives the Southern film fraternity a taste of her talent

In case you did not know, the NTR biopic is being directed by Teja and will highlight the unknown aspects of the former mass leader’s life. Its first look was released a couple of months ago and it did full justice the former Andhra CM’s larger than life image. The NTR biopic is arguably one of the biggest Tollywood films in recent times.

On a related note, NBK was last seen in the Sankranthi release Jai Simha and received praise for his massy act. As far as Vidya is concerned, she was last seen in the well received Tumhari Sulu.

So, is Vidya the right choice for the NTR biopic? Comments, please!
