NTR, a biopic on the life of legendary actor and politician Sr. NTR, is one of the much-awaited projects in Tollywood. Teja is directing this biopic and Nandamuri Balakrishna himself would be seen in the role of his father. NTR would highlight important aspects of his life and focus more on his political career, covering the 1983 Elections.
The makers have been in search of a female lead for the longest time. Teja came up with a face recognition software to hunt for an actress to play the role of Basavatarakam (wife of NTR.) Initially, Nithya Menen was approached to play this reputed role. However, Nithya rejected this offer due to reasons unknown.
It is now revealed, the makers of NTR approached Bollywood actress Vidya Balan to play the role of Basavatarakam. This actress is famous for playing strong roles in movies like Dirty Picture, Kahaani and Tumhari Sullu. However, an official confirmation about this news is yet awaited.
Wishing Teja and the entire team of NTR, all the very best for their upcoming film!
