Nandamuri Balakrishna seems to be in a huge tense situation and the reason is NTR, the much awaited biopic on his legendary father NT Rama Rao. Firstly, Balayya received a huge jolt when NTR’s director Teja exited the project after a grand launch.

Balayya and the film’s producers have been on a frantic hunt to rope in the right director to help the project. There was also rumours that Balayya himself would direct the biopic. Adding to these tensions, Balayya is said to be apprehensive with the unanimous positive outcome of Mahanati.

The grand success (both critical and commercial) of Mahanati has put Balayya under tremendous pressure. If a biopic on Savithri’s life could become such a hot topic, the magnitude of expectations around NTR’s biopic would be multifold. Balayya and his team will have to come up with a memorable project to match with Mahanati’s success.
