The film would be portraying the journey of the late Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao who was an actor turned politician, Founder of Telugu Desam Party and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. It is going to be directed by Krish Jagarlamudi.
The NTR biopic is turning out to be one of the most awaited films in Tollywood. With Nandamuri Balakrishna all set to play the titular role, and the script almost locked, the filmmakers are currently on the hunt for the remaining cast of the film. While it has been learned that Vidya Balan will be playing the role of Basavatarakam, reports suggest that actor Rana Daggubati might be roped in for the role of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and NTR’s son-in-law, Nara Chandrababu Naidu.
The movie is expected to hit the screens on the occasion of Sankranti in 2019, as informed by its producer, Vishnu Induri.
