NTR biopic will be directed by Teja and will be co-produced by Balakrishna. Actor Junior NTR, star of popular films like Jai Lava Kusa and Naanaku Prematho, is a third generation star from the Nandamuri clan. Jr NTR is named after NTR, who was his grandfather.
In a recent interview with news agency IANS, Jr NTR said, "I've been given the opportunity to carry forward the legacy with which people associate me. I can't escape it even if I don't like it. I take pride in carrying forward what's been given to me."
Earlier, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma had also expressed his desire to do a biopic on NTR's life. He had also said the film will "shed light on NTR's unknown sides, including his enemies and the people who betrayed him."
The biopic will go on floors later, this year. Teja's last film was also a political drama titled Nene Raju Nene Mantri, which starred Rana Daggubati in the lead role.
