The biopic on the late Chief Minister and legendary actor N.T. Rama Rao is in the news again. While actor Balakrishna had announced that he would be playing his father in the latter’s biopic, it is now being reported that Ram Gopal Varma may direct this film.

Apparently, the two developed a good rapport when Balakrishna met Amitabh Bachchan on the sets of Hindi film Sarkar 3. From then on, it is learnt that the duo has been exchanging notes, on various things including the biopic.

 

“RGV wants to make a full story on the late NTR that includes him being overthrown from the position of CM, and his eventual marriage. But the makers and Balakrishna want to end the film at the point where he became the CM for the first time, as his life is full of controversies,” says a source.

Meanwhile, Vishnu Induri, the film’s producer, hasn’t met RGV yet and middlemen have been discussing the film with the director and actor. So, why RGV? “Initially, the makers approached K. Raghavendra Rao but he expressed his doubts as he usually makes only devotional films. They also approached others, who were apprehensive because it is the biopic of a well-known figure like NTR. That’s when they felt that RGV, who has already helmed a few real-life stories, would be best suited to don the director’s cap,” adds the source.

 

A source close to the producer clarifies that nothing has been decided yet and that RGV is not directing it for now. The question is: Who will finally handle the prestigious project?
