The whole country is now roaming around biopics of famous people and Telugu cinema lovers are also excited to see three biopics in the coming days. While the first of them is Savitri’s “Mahanati”, second will be NTR’s biopic “NTR” and another one is YSR’s biopic “Yaatra”. And here is an interesting snippet.
If at all biopics are to be made, it could be any celebrity’s story. We’ve now Sanjay Dutt’s biopic coming up in Bollywood with Ranbir Kapoor in lead under Raju Hirani’s direction. If “Sanju” is coming, then Tollywood could come up with biopics of many other legendary film stars from LV Prasad to Chiranjeevi, ANR to Brahmanandam.
Buzz has that Akkineni Nagarjuna is quietly working on the biopic of his father, legendary Akkineni Nageswara Rao. Few of the Annapurna Film School students are said to be working with some senior writers and journalists to develop a concrete script for a film on ANR, say some rumours.
Sources from the Annapurna Studios revealed that there is no such plan on Nagarjuna’s mind at the moment. Currently, he’s focused only on releasing ‘Officer, wrapping his film with Nani, and finalising the script of Akhil-Venky Atluri movie.
Probably that idea of making ANR’s biopic might get triggered only after one sees how Savitri fares at the box office. This is the first time Telugu audiences are going to give their verdict over a biopic, so wait for the reality check.
