Director Ram Gopal Varma today announced that he has already selected a newcomer to essay the role of legendary actor N T Rama Rao in his biopic – ‘Lakshmi’s NTR’. “I will reveal the identity of the actor sometime later. Currently he is undergoing training. I will use latest makeup technology and prosthetics to make him look exactly like late N T Rama Rao. I had employed similar method for my film about Veerappan,”RGV explained further.
“Lakshmi’s NTR”, that tells the life story of N T Rama Rao from the point of view of Lakshmi Parvathi, his widow.
“Many people have misconceptions about my movie. I am not narrating the entire life story of NTR but would narrate what makes NTR the legend. If you have seen Richard Attenborough’s ‘Gandhi’, you would understand what I am saying,” he said.
RGV says he will commence a film with Nagarjuna before launching this NTR biopic.
