On Tuesday, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma announced that he would be directing the highly anticipated biopic of legendary Telugu film actor and politician Sr NTR. The actor’s son Balakrishna Nandamuri is gearing up to step into his father’s shoes. Can Balayya do justice to NTR’s role? The late actor’s wife Lakshmi Parvathi doesn’t believes so.
Soon after the announcement on NTR’s biopic was made, Lakshmi Parvathi spoke to media and said that she has doubts on Varma’s ability in portraying the incidents happened in her husband’s last few years of life. She allegedly opined that Balayya is unsuitable to play NTR’s character.
Highlighting why Varma was the wrong choice, Parvathi said that he had allegedly shown NTR in bad light in ‘Raktha Charithra’. She questioned if Varma has similar courage of portraying Chandrababu Naidu as the villain in NTR’s biopic. She demanded for the authentic presentation of how Babu allegedly backstabbed his father-in-law and dethroned him from CM chair.
