Nandamuri Balakrishna is on a break and he is overlooking the pre-production work of his next film NTR which is the biopic of his father and legendary actor turned politician NTR. The movie will be made on a huge budget and Teja has been roped in to direct the film. The regular shoot of the film will start this month on 29th with a massive pooja ceremony in Ramakrishna Studios, Hyderabad. The makers are busy finalizing the other lead actors along with the crew. Finalizing the female lead turned out to be a huge challenge for Teja and his team.
Several actresses have been approached for the role of Basavatarakam but the makers are yet to get a positive nod. Now the makers approached Bollywood beauty Vidya Balan for the role and she was happy to come on to the board. With decent remuneration and interesting role, Vidya Balan signed the film. The makers are quite relieved now however an official announcement is awaited. MM Keeravani is composing the tunes and Hollywood technicians are currently working on the looks of Balakrishna. Brahma Teja Films will bankroll this project which will release during Sankranthi 2019.
