The NTR biopic is one of the biopics to look forward which is being made in the Telugu film industry. With a number of biopics being made currently including the YSR biopic Yaatra and the Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy biopic Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, fans are equally excited and eagerly waiting for this one as well. NTR biopic features N Balakrishna in the title role. As per a recent media report actress Rakul Preet Singh is roped in to play the role of late actor Sridevi in the movie.
Makers have revealed that Rakul was their first choice as she is a popular face in the South Indian film industry. Sridevi and NTR have done 14 movies together including Rowdi Ramudu Konte Krishnudu (1980) and Vayyari Bhamalu Vagalamaari Bharthalu (1982).
Even the makers of the movie officially announced Rakul Preet's involvement on Twitter last Saturday. In an interview with a leading daily, an elated Rakul said, "This is going to be the most challenging character I’ve played so far because Srideviji is a legend. She was and is loved by millions. I have always been a big fan of hers and playing the diva on screen is a huge responsibility. I hope I can do justice to the role. I am thankful that the makers of the film have such faith in me, and I hope I am able to live up to it."
