The NTR biopic is one of the most awaited biopics of the next year. The film has been the talk of the town since its inception with the makers unveiling the first look of each character of the film. Now, the first much awaited look of Vidya Balan as NTR’s wife Basavatarakam is out and she looks elegant in it. The vintage look sees the talented actress dressed in a traditional South Indian silk sari and is seen playing the harmonium. The first look also sees actor Balakrishna as NTR sitting beside her.
Rana will be seen playing Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu in the biopic on Telugu actor-turned-politician Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao (NTR). The film also stars Rakul Preet as Sridevi. Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao’s biopic is being directed by Krish, who was earlier working on Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. However, he left the film mid-way to direct the NTR biopic. The biopic has been titled NTR Kathanayakudu and is all set to release on January 9, 2019.
