Can Puri Jagannadh Handle NTR Biopic?

Legendary Actor and Politician, Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao’s Biopic has been launched in a grand way last month. Director Teja has dropped his other project with Victory Venkatesh for this movie. But then all of sudden, Teja walked out of the project leaving the project in the doldrums. Buzz is that Balayya is now keen on bringing Puri Jagannadh on board for NTR Biopic. The duo became very close during the shoot of Paisa Vasool. But then Puri is not in the best of the forms and has pinned all his hopes on his summer release film, Mehbooba. In case Puri is not in the project, Balayya may himself step in to direct the movie.
Santosh Thundiyil who cranked the camera for ‘Krrish’, ‘Rustom’ and ‘MS Dhoni’ will be working as director of photography of the film. This marks the Telugu debut of the cinematographer. Bollywood actor Vidya Balan is under consideration for the role of Basavatarakam, wife of NTR. Keeravani will be composing music for the film. The film will be produced by his soon to be established production house, Brahma Teja Productions. Balayya’s daughters – Brahmani and Tejaswini are the producers. It will be co-produced by Vishnu Induri and Sai Korrapati. The cast and crew may change with the new director.
