Ever since Teja opted out of NTR biopic, there had been rumours on who would direct the prestigious film of biopic of legend NTR. While speculations had it that Balayya would direct the film, there were also rumours of Teja returning to the project. However, quashing all those rumours, sensible filmmaker Krish Jagarlamudi has been roped in to wield the megaphone for NTR.
Since Krish had delivered a master piece in form of Gautamiputra Satakarni with Balayya, the combination indeed gets bigger than the previous combo of Balayya and Teja and naturally, expectations have multiplied on NTR with the reunion of Krish, Balayya.
Since Krish is already busy with his ongoing epic film Manikarnika, the biopic of Jhansi Ki Rani Lakshmibai, featuring Kangana Ranaut, many feared that Krish may not accept NTR Biopic. Even Teja had not expected the move. But giving a befitting counter, the makers have persuaded Krish to get on board. This is indeed a huge set back to Teja who already lost a film with Venkatesh.
