Bollywood star Vidya Balan is making her Tollywood debut with an iconic role in the biopic of NTR. Reportedly she is essaying the character of Basavatarakam, NTR’s first wife and the entire story will be narrated through her eyes. Balakrishna is playing NTR’s role in the film.
As the makers want to make this a true-blue biopic which chronicles the different stages of NTR, they are shooting in authentic locations where the legendary actor stayed during the initial days of his political career. Currently, the team is filming key episodes in NTR’s former house located in Abids. Reports suggest that NTR lived in that residence for more than a decade before moving to Banjara Hills.
The makers are also ensuring that no part of the film is leaked from sets. So they are taking stringent measures while shooting crucial episodes. Directed by Krish, the film is slated for Sankranthi release.
