Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao is undoubtedly one of the greatest actors Tollywood has ever seen. The legendary actor reached new heights in his illustrious acting career. That is not all, Sr NTR led a successful career in politics as well.

On a contemporary note, N Balakrishna is planning to make a biopic about his father. Surprisingly, this project is taking a long time to go on floors as Balayya is very particular about the way script works turn out. The lead cast in the movie is yet to be finalized and this is proving to be a tough task for the makers.

Many names were considered to play the role of Sr NTR’s wife, Basavatarakam. However, there was no solid confirmation about the lady lead from the movie unit.

The latest news is that Bollywood diva, Vidya Balan is being considered for the role. Vidya is considered as a natural actress and can bring a lot of depth to the character. This seems to be provoking the movie unit to finalize this Kerala born actress.

If all goes well, Vidya will be roped in to act alongside Balayya in this movie. Cine circles are saying that Vidya’s inclusion can expand the market for the movie as she has a decent following in North India. We can expect an official confirmation soon.
