Rana’s acting was brilliant in ‘Nene Raju Nene Mantri’ in which he reaches to the post of chief minister. Director Teja, who was out of form, gave a hit by making ‘Nene Raju Nene Mantri’ in the political backdrop. With that hit, Teja also bagged the opportunity to make a biopic on legendary actor NTR. Senior hero Balakrishna entrusted to him with the responsibility of directing the prestigious movie. Teja-Balaiah NTR biopic was launched with puja and it has gone to the sets. They have already completed two-day shooting.
With complete script, Teja is directing NTR movie. Besides Balakrishna, Teja picked up few actors and actresses. He has not yet selected heroine for Basvatarakam character and similarly actor for Chandrababu’s role. There is a talk that Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is being approached to play Basvatarakam. There are also speculations that Teja is approaching Rana to play Chandrababu. Teja liked Rana’s acting in ‘Nene Raju Nene Mantri’ and hence is keen to have Rana to play Chandrababu in NTR movie. There is no room for doubts that Rana will agree to act in NTR or not. This is because he likes Teja’s direction. It is said that Rana will readily agree to act in the movie. Balaiah will not project Chandrababu as villain in NTR biopic. If this role is not of a villain, Rana will have no objection to play it. However, it remains to be seen if Rana is picked up for Chandrababu’s role or Teja goes for some other actor.
