Nandamuri Balakrishna first picked Teja to direct the prestigious Sr NTR biopic. However, Teja stepped out of the project, saying that he cannot handle a project of such high magnitude. This left Balayya in a dilemma whether to go forward with the movie or not. At one stage, there were rumors that Balayya himself is looking to direct the movie. After his followers suggested against it, Balayya dropped the idea and did not speak out about the project.
The latest news is that Balayya is all set to kickstart his new movie under VV Vinayak’s direction. With the movie set to go on floors soon, it looks like NTR biopic is shelved as of now. This is surely a good news for Nandamuri fans as making a biopic on NTR is not an easy task. The movie needs a great deal of detailing and homework on the legendary actor’s life story.
It needs to be said that Balayya is doing the right by staying nonchalant on the project. Any hurry burry acts can spoil the essence of the film. It would be better if Balakrishna takes his time and choose the right person to direct the larger than life movie.
