Super talented director Krish has been assigned the responsibility to direct the prestigious NTR biopic which has been titled NTR. Nandamuri Balakrishna would reprise his father in the movie which will start rolling from July 5th. Krish made minor changes to the script and legendary actor ANR’s role has been extended. There are strong talks that Balakrishna would approach Nag for the role of ANR in the movie but this never happened.
The latest update is that Krish convinced young actor Sumanth to reprise the role of ANR in the movie and Sumanth gave an immediate nod. Krish felt that Sumanth would be an apt choice as Naga Chaitanya already played ANR in Mahanti. The entire pre-production work of NTR has been wrapped up recently and NBK Films along with Vishnu Induri and Sai Korrapati will produce NTR. The film would release during Sankranthi 2019.
