Harikrishna’s role to be memorable in NTR

0

NTR’s biopic shoot is taking place on a brisk pace in Hyderabad. Nandamuri Balakrishna made sure all the crucial people in NTR’s life will have enough screen space in the film and the makers roped in versatile actors for the roles. Nandamuri Kalyanram has been asked to reprise his father Nandamuri Harikrishna in the film who passed away recently in a tragic accident. Harikrishna’s role is said to be memorable one for Nandamuri fans and Kalyanram allotted bulk dates for the role.

He will be shooting for the film in September. Harikrishna played a pivotal role in NTR’s political journey and he was the one who drove ‘Annagari Chaitanya Radham’. All these episodes will have enough prominence in the film and Krish is now taking extra care to can those episodes. Nandamuri fans will sure connect well for the episodes of Harikrishna and he will be remembered through the role. Balakrishna too feels that this would be the best tribute for his brother. Kalyanram will be shooting for a month for NTR without breaks.

Directed by Krish, NTR will release during Sankranthi 2019. NBK Films are the producers and Balakrishna is playing the title role.

Eulogy – Nandamuri Hari Krishna, a celebrated life (with limitations)

Nandamuri Harikrishna may not have had the spectacular career history of his legendary father or his younger brother Balakrishna but his last passage yesterday and the run-up to it the day before which threw Hyderabad city into an unprecedented traffic-quake shows that there are many who have resonated well with this son of NTR. It must have been the party workers of TDP who always found an easy shoulder in HK to cry on or the legions of hard-core fans of the late NTR who saw in HK an image of the thespian actor – with all the swagger, dialogue modulation and theatricality that is characteristic of the late NTR. It is natural for civilians like us to complain but the groundswell which threw the city’s traffic near the epicentre of his home out of gear is not a contracted one nor was it predictable, given the somewhat low-key life that Harikrishna led. A child actor debut as Lord Krishna and many happy-go-lucky roles later, a reluctant foray into films on terms that made him comfortable in his own skin (in his early forties) that had its mark. There were the roles that gave NTR fans a reprise of the Superstar himself in mature characters that suited his age and demeanour. And then those countless days spent driving around the dad or any other family members which must have given him many memories and recounts of value that would have made it into a book some day. Even Tollywood-anthem-singing channels missed the cue to interview HK exhaustively while he was alive on nostalgia and trivia about NTR. While it is unfortunate that Harikrishna lost his life not wearing a seat-belt in an activity of driving that always beat the stress out of him, there is a lot to learn from the man.

According to myths, before NTR plunged into politics he apportioned his wealth into as many portions as the number of his progeny between Hyderabad, Chennai and Vijayawada. Harikrishna inherited easily the corner of the city that was the prime estate of the day (not any more). Whereas Balakrishna inherited the property in Musheerabad now called the NBK Enclave which has become a sub-optimal and ill-maintained property which once housed the SubRegistrar’s Office in full glory. Harikrishna, it must be credited, has been a worthy heir who diligently worked for a fine upkeep and balance that not only protected the property of Ramakrishna Theatre Complex but also enhanced it. Whether it is a sweet pan, or a jowar Roti, or a quiet meal or a cup of filter coffee, you can savor them all at the RK Complex which is kept well. There must be some discipline and diligence to even protect and maintain an estate which is not so easy for all inheritors –and I have seen enough examples of an inheritance gone to dust in few years. Harikrishna deserved praise to have preserved his father’s legacy in estate management at Ramakrishna Complex. The last time I saw a film at RK was “Leader” – it had a good ambience and amazing sound quality. Be that as it may, the legacy of the man was also in nurturing gen-next with the likes of NTR Jr and Kalyan Ram. The latter never tires of making new films with debutante directors even if many of them miss a mark. Yes, HK would have lived on to the seventies and more had he reigned in the rush of the adrenalin in driving fast and unsecured. But his life in real, his approach to wealth, the short spurt in his second innings, and the way he worked as a foot soldier in TDP till the last (when he was wearing a yellow shirt) would have made his father in heaven so proud of him before both of them meet soon. There is still a lot of legacy left in him in the way his two sons have shaped their careers so far and who knows even his eldest grandson who played the title role in Daana Veera Soora Karna. Good bye and peace in heaven to a kind soul, a diligent worker, an actor who played to his strengths but aware of his limitations, an animal lover (a friend of mine who is his neighbour always saw a glint in HK’s eyes when he used to go out with his dog and an anxious expression when he used to walk alone without the dog) and a warm human being to everybody. No wonder, the last passage had people more than “those four people” including a sitting Chief Minister and an Ex-Supreme Court Judge.

NTR and Kalyan Ram no to TDP’s request

In a tragic road accident, actor and former TDP politburo member Nandamuri Hari Krishna passed away in Hyderabad on Wednesday. The deceased body was kept for public visit at his residence and the obsequies were carried out on Thursday with full state honours by the Telangana government.

As Hari Krishna served as a former minister and a politburo member of the Telugu Desam party, which was launched by his father and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh NT Rama Rao, it came as a little surprise to many that his body was not taken to the party office in Hyderabad before the final rites were performed.

Sources close to the Nandamuri family revealed that NTR and Kalyan Ram, sons of Hari Krishna, refused to take his body to the party headquarters. Though the TDP leaders wanted Hari Krishna’s body to be kept at the party office at least for few minutes as a mark of respect, Nandamuri bothers were against it and said no to their request.

During the final rites, TDP chief and Andhra CM Chandra Babu Naidu was seen draping the Telugu Desam party flag over Hari Krishna’s body.

It is well known that Hari Krishna and his sons stayed away from active politics after the 2009 elections due to various reasons. So, it seems his family didn’t want to make the death a political affair and denied permission to take the body to the party office.
