The suspense about the director of NTR – The Biopic of Legendary NTR is finally cleared as NTR Jayanthi Special. Balayya has managed to convince director Krish to handle the project and he himself announced it the other day via a Youtube Video. Our readers are aware that Teja was to handle this project but he walked out of it. After many names in the media, finally, Balayya brought in Krish to handle this prestigious project.
After the announcement, the other disappointing news is that Krish is reportedly not very happy with the script and wants to make several changes. But then, it is the script prepared under Balayya’s supervision and it has to be seen if he agrees to the changes. So, it has to be seen how the script will be locked amicably between the two. The director who is currently busy with Bollywood film, Manikarnika has the credit of giving the biggest hit in Balayya’s career with Gautamiputra Satakarni for Sankranthi the last year. Manikarnika shooting is completed a long ago and the film is in post-production stage. The movie which was supposed to release as Independence Day Special will now only release in January 2019, sources say. So Krish may be shuttling between Hyderabad and Mumbai for both these projects in the next few months. Bollywood Heroine Vidya Balan is being considered for the role of NTR’s wife, Basavatarakam. MM Keeravani is going to compose music for the film. It is his first time with the director.
