Bollywood Actress Vidya Balan to play NTR’s wife Basavatarakam. Rana Daggubati will be joining the star cast of the upcoming biopic NTR playing the role of NTR’s son-in-law N Chandra Babu Naidu. Now, the latest buzz suggests that the filmmakers have roped in Bollywood actor Vidya Balan and Bengali actor Jisshu Sengupta to essay pivotal roles in the biopic. Several names were doing rounds and Vidya Balan was the top contender among them. We had earlier reported that the makers had approached the Bollywood actress with the offer. She was impressed with the role and had given her nod to act in the movie.
Indian film critic and journalist, Taran Adarsh tweeted the news:
IT’S OFFICIAL… Vidya Balan in #NTR biopic… She enacts the part of NTR’s wife Basavatarakam… NTR’s son Balakrishna enacts the role of NTR… Directed by Krish… Produced by Balakrishna, Sai Korrapati and Vishnu Vardhan Induri [co-producing #1983Biopic in Hindi]. #NTRBiopic.”
The film was launched at a grand event in Hyderabad, which was attended by Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu, who also gave the clap for muhurat shot. While director Teja was earlier announced to co-author and direct the biopic, he opted out of the project after the initial hype citing “creative differences”.
National Award-winning filmmaker Krish earlier directed Balakrishna in the period drama Gautamiputra Satakarni, which released last year.
