It is a well-known fact that Teja was supposed to direct Balakrishna’s prestigious biopic about his father NTR. But due to creative differences, Teja opted to walk out of it. Recently during the media interaction to promote his latest film, ‘Sita’ he talked about NTR biopic and said that he got more fame after leaving NTR biopic.
Teja said that he found himself unsuitable to handle such a big subject, so he left. He added, “Few people asked me why did I leave such a prestigious project. Some opined that the output of NTR biopic would’ve been different if I had helmed it.”
Teja said he felt happy when people thought NTR biopic would have been more honest and interesting and would have worked if he had directed it. Meanwhile, Sita has opened to mixed reviews and collections are not up to the mark.
