It has already been reported that actor Nandamuri Balakrishna and director Teja have joined hands for a biopic on legendary Telugu actor and former chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao. On the occasion of NTR’s death anniversary on Wednesday, the title logo of his biopic was unveiled. A special teaser was also planned to be unveiled on the occasion; however, for reasons unknown the plan was postponed. Titled NTR, the picture gives us a glimpse of Balakrishna as NTR surrounded by hordes of his supporters. It looks like a picture from his election campaigning days.

While the regular shoot of the project will only commence later this year, Teja and Balakrishna shot a special teaser in December in Hyderabad’s Ramakrishna Studios. The teaser was planned to be officially launched to mark the announcement of the project. Teja is a huge NTR and MGR fan and the fact that he recently made a political film (Nene Raju Nenu Mantri) makes him the perfect choice for the project. Balakrishna will step into the shoes of his late father and the project will mark his debut as a producer. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised.

Meanwhile, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma has also announced he will direct a biopic on NTR. In a statement, he had said that NTR is a name to reckon with every Telugu-speaking individual. “He was not just a great actor but a leader with unprecedented following. I’m very proud to direct a film on his life.”

However, Balakrishna had said he has no association with RGV on the project he aspires to make, amidst rumours that he might act in his film.
