Nandamuri Balakrishna is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that #NTR biopic will become that huge film. After Teja's exit, Balayya jumped into the ring to rope in Krish and bring some other actors aboard.
One such actress who agreed to play the role of NTR's wife Basavatarakam after a lot of consultations is none other than Vidya Balan. Though Krish is the one who first convinced her, we hear that Balayya went all the way to her house in Mumbai to bring her aboard. And yes, he's said to have offered a staggering remuneration.
Demanding more than leading Telugu sirens, we hear that Vidya Balan charged a whopping 2 crores remuneration to make her Telugu debut. Though her role is pretty less in terms of length, the team wanted her presence as she could command huge buzz across the nation for the film.
On the other hand, Balayya and Krish are working pretty hard at Ramoji Film City to wrap the film on the schedule such that they will meet the deadlines. NTR is set for January 9th, 2019 release.
