Since this is a first time that Jr NTR and Trivikram Srinivas are coming together for a film, hopes are pretty high. There are also reports that after his last film Agnyathavasi with Pawan Kalyan failed to impress most audience and critics, the filmmaker has got a new team on board to ensure that his next with Jr NTR is a big box office success. Interestingly, there were also rumours that Jr NTR decided to opt out of  Trivikram’s project after Agnyathavasi turned out to be a dud. However, it looks like the actor has decided to put in as much efforts as the director to make #NTR28 a grand film. Check out his transformed, ripped body here:
