The first of it’s kind, Nandamuri Balakrishna essays the role of his father, NTR in the film. Finally opening up about it, he reveals to Indian Express that, his father was his god and mentor.
“I grew up admiring him. And for long, I had the desire to play characters which he did. But, with time, the taste of people also change. I was concerned whether people would watch such movies if they were to be made today. But, NTR: Kathanayakudu and NTR: Mahanayakudu fulfilled my desire to play all the characters played by my father,” he reveals.

Speaking about stepping into his father’s shoes, Balakrishna adds, “I think it is for the first time in the history of cinema, a son is playing his father in a film. I never thought I would be playing my father on the big screen. When this idea was pitched to me, I realized it was my duty as a son to make this film.” (Also Read: Ahead of the biopic’s release, Vidya Balan and Nandamuri Balakrishna visit NTR’s village)
