Director Teja of Nene Raju Nene Mantri fame, is all set to start shooting for the biopic on NTR that stars Balakrishna. According to a source, the film will open with the character of Indira Gandhi. “Indira Gandhi along with P. V. Narasimha Rao is travelling to Tirupati in a car. She sees big posters of Lord Rama and Krishna and folds her hands with devotion. Then P. V. Narasimha Rao tells her that they are not real gods and that a top actor called NTR has played the role of these gods. She then curiously asks Rao about him and the story starts there,” says the source.
The film will narrate NTR’s life story right from a young age till the time he becomes the National Front chairman. “The story also reveals his political career and how he started the National Front” reveals the source. However, the team has decided not to include the Lakshmi Parvathi episode in the biopic; so it will end right after V.P. Singh takes over as the prime minister.
