Nandamuri Balakrishna is on a mission to bring his legendary father NTR’s life history to silver screen. NTR biopic has been facing hurdles since its launch. Director Teja walked out of the project and Krish Jagarlamudi shouldered the responsibility. Now, again filmnagar buzz is that producers Vishnu Induri and Sai Korrapati said to be backing off from the film. Vishnu Induri is also producing biopic on Jayalalitha and 83 Cricket world cup.
Apparently, he walked out of NTR biopic as budget went overboard. The film has ensemble star cast. Bollywood beauty Vidya Balan is playing Basavatarakamma. Rana Daggubati will be seen as Chandrababu Naidu. Recently released pic of Naidu with NTR created curiosity over the film. Krish is leaving no stone unturned to give authentic look to the film.
Balayya too is being extremely cautious to replicate and imitate NTR. Latest grapevine is that the film has already made whopping pre-release business. If the reports are anything to be believed NTR biopic has made a pre-release business of 100 crores. Buzz also has it that the overseas rights are sold for 20 crore. Mind numbing numbers of course.
However, there are no official confirmation on this. Trade pundits doubt if the film has got such a massive demand. Balakrishna has a track record of scoring blockbusters for Sankranthi. Moreover, it is season of biopics. So, the film may have potential to rake moolah at box-office.
