The N.T.R biopic is one of the most talked projects in the Telugu film industry. The biopic has been titled as NTR Kathanayakudu.
The film will star Nandamuri Balakrishna as N.T.R, Vidya Balan as Basavatarakam, his first wife. Rana Daggubati who is best known as Bhallaladeva from Baahubali plays the role of Nara Chandrababu Naidu in the film.
And now, actress Rakul Preet Singh has been roped in to play the role of late legendary actress Sridevi in the film.
Not many know that Sridevi starred in almost 14 films with NTR. And some of their popular film together as ‘Rowdi Ramudu Konte Krishnudu’ and ‘Vayyari Bhamalu Vagalamaari Bharthalu’.
Producer Vishnu Induri was quoted by Mid Day earlier saying that Rakul has been their first choice. “We haven’t approached Sonakshi, Kangana or Shraddha. Rakul Preet Singh is our only choice as she’s popular in the South, especially in Telugu films. We have shot almost 30 per cent of the movie; Vidya has already shot for six days. We are working on Rakul’s dates for now.”
Directed by Krish, the movie will be released in two parts. While the first part Kathanayakudu will release on January 9, 2019, the second part Mahanayakudu will hit theatres on January 24.
