The biopic on the late NTR, starring his son Balakrishna, has just commenced shooting. Meanwhile, the filmmakers are on the lookout for a suitable actress to play the role of NTR’s wife Basavatharakam.

Apparently, they received a huge surge of applications that could not be manually filtered and so, the film’s director Teja decided to take the technology route. He apparently purchased face recognition software to match suitable profiles with that of Basavatharakam, and then audition them. The process is currently underway.

 

A source from the unit informs, “Facial recognition software analyses the features of a person’s face through a digital video camera. It measures the overall facial structure and retains it in a database. The same features are then mapped to new aspirants who have likely features. Director Teja believes this process is handy to filter the large surge of applications.”
