Jr NTR made his TV debut with Bigg Boss Telugu last year.

If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, Jr NTR and his wife Lakshmi Pranathi are set to enter parenthood for the second time as they’re expecting a new entrant into their family. Apparently, Pranathi is due in May and the couple is looking forward to welcome their second child. Even as reports about NTR turning down the opportunity to host the second season of Telugu Bigg Boss is making rounds, it makes sense now why he may have decided to pass the golden offer as he wants to be around his wife.

NTR has a four-year old son Abhay Ram, whose birthday last year was celebrated on the sets of Bigg Boss. The reports about the second baby on the way for Tarak are yet to be officially confirmed but sources have indicated that the actor doesn’t want to comment and intends to maintain a low profile. Meanwhile, the actor is set to commence work on his next project with filmmaker Trivikram from March onwards. The yet-untitled project marks their first time collaboration and is most likely to hit the screens this Diwali.

Tarak will also commence work on his highly anticipated project with SS Rajamouli from June or July. The project will also star Ram Charan and it’ll be the first time he’ll share screen space with the Jai Lava Kusa actor. The film will be bankrolled by DVV Danayya.
