Finally, it looks like the search for an actor to play Legendary NTR on the silver screen has ended. At a time when Nandamuri Balakrishna is wearing the shoes of his father for the upcoming biopic, NTR, there is another search going on. This time it is for an actor to reprise the role of Taraka Ramarao for "Mahanati" movie.
From Jr NTR to some other star heroes, many were approached to play the role of NTR in this upcoming biopic of actress Savitri. However, they haven't found one with many actors including Jr NTR refusing to play the role, for reasons better known to them. And now, we hear that director Nag Ashwin has finally found one.
With Nani having that good friendship with Swapna Dutt through Nandini Reddy, the makers are said to have convinced him to play Sr NTR on the silver screen. As Nani happens to be a controversy-free actor, surely his portrayal will not be questioned by any and everyone knows that he will justify his presence with his terrific acting capabilities.
Currently, Mahanati is going through editing process at Prasad Labs as director Nag Ashwin and his team are spending sleepless nights there to get the right output. Keerthi Suresh will be seen as Savitri, while Dulquer Salman played Gemini Ganesan, Vijay Devarkonda as ANR and Samantha is playing Jamuna's role in "Mahanati".
