Rakul Preet to Play Late Sridevi in NTR Biopic
The NT Rama Rao biopic is one of the most talked about projects in tollywood courtesy to its ensemble star cast and the interesting life of NTR. It stars Nandamuri Balakrishna as N.T.R and Vidya Balan as Basavatarakam, his first wife. Rana Daggubati who is best known as Bhallaladeva from Baahubali plays the role of Nara Chandrababu Naidu in the film. As we know, Chandrababu Naidu has been one of the most influential chief ministers of the state, formerly only Andhra Pradesh. He is the son-in-law of NTR after marrying his daughter, Bhuvaneshwari. The movie is directed by Krish who stepped in after Teja walked out from it.
The latest update about the casting makes the movie even more exciting. Rakul Preet Singh has been roped in to play the role of late Sridevi who has worked in about 14 movies with NTR. Sridevi and NTR’s popular movies include Rowdi Ramudu Konte Krishnudu (1980) and Vayyari Bhamalu Vagalamaari Bharthalu (1982). Certainly, the two have been a great part of each other’s career so it was very important to find the right actress to play Sridevi. And seems like the producers have found their fit.
