Yesterday, confirming the months long speculation, hero Sumanth announced that he will be playing his legendary grandfather Akkineni Nageswara Rao in NTR biopic. Sumanth's addition has brought in an extra craze for this prestigious project.
But it looks like a section of Akkineni fans are deeply upset with Sumanth for being part of NTR biopic. Many fans are even tagging Sumanth's Twitter handle and are forcing him to quit the project. And here's the main reason for fans' angst.
When Akkineni Nageswara Rao passed away in 2014, a large number of film industry celebrities from across the country paid their last respects to the legend. However, Balakrishna did not pay his final respect to his father's best friend and co-star. This pained Akkineni fans and they have been unhappy with Balayya since then.
Will Sumanth consider Akkineni fans' pleas or go ahead and act in NTR biopic to build a positive relationship with Balakrishna and Nandamuri fans.
