Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is all set to make her debut in Telugu cinema with a biopic on NTR. Her first look from the film was released on Thursday on Twitter, and it showed her looking very elegant. From the vintage looking picture, we can see Vidya, who was dressed in a traditional south Indian silk sari and jewellery, playing the harmonium as actor Nandamuri Balakrishna, who plays the role of his father NTR, sits beside her.
The picture was released by NBK Films, Balakrishna’s production house, with the caption “Basavatharakkama with Tarakarama (NTR)”. Basava Tarakam was NTR’s first wife, who was also his maternal uncle’s daughter. Together, the two had 12 children.
The biopic will be released in two parts titled, N.T.R: Kathanayakudu and N.T.R: Mahanayakudu. The first part will be about the rise of Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao as an actor, and the second about his political rise.
The upcoming biographical drama, based on the life of former movie star and politician NT Rama Rao, is being directed by Krish Jagarlamudi, and produced by Nandamuri Balakrishna, Sai Korrapati Ranganatha, Vishnu Induri under NBK Films, Vaaraahi Chalana Chitram, and Vibri Media banners, with the music composed by MM Keeravani.
Among the actors starring in the film will be Rana Daggubati, who will play the part of the current chief minister, Chandrababu Naidu, who is NTR’s son-in-law.
