There are reports doing the rounds that there’s tension between director Krish Jagarlamudi and Telugu superstar Nandamuri Balakrishna over the biopic on Balakrishna’s father, the iconic actor-politician N.T. Rama Rao.
Part 1 of the film released few months ago didn’t do well at the box office. Now Part 2 is ready for release and everyone in the camp is said to be tense. However the director Krish completely denies all the hearsay saying, “I don’t know where these stories are coming from. Because Balakrishnaji and I are on the best of terms. Our bonding has only been strengthened as we set out to make a film on his great father.”
Krish says he discovered so many unknown facets of NTR’s personality while making the two-part film. He describes it as an “enriching and rewarding journey.”
When asked about the rumour that Balakrishna was unhappy with the decision to make his father’s bio-pic in two parts, Krish clarifies that it was always the plan to depict NTR’s acting career in the first part and his political career in the second part.
“Let NTR Kathanaykukdu release this Friday and all speculation will stop,” promises Krish.
