The cast of NTR, a biopic on legendary actor-turned-politician is getting bigger day by day. While Rana has confirmed the news of playing Nara Chandra Babu Naidu in this movie, the latest news is that Sumanth has been roped into play the role of his grandfather Akkineni Nageswara Rao.
There were a lot of speculations about this news but recently, actor Sumanth has confirmed that he is a part of the movie now, says a source. Going by the news, though there are many others actor who are being roped in to the project, addition of Sumanth has added a lot of craze to the project now.
This is actually good and exciting news but, looks like many of the Akkineni fans are not happy with Sumanth’s decision.
Twitterati’s have tagged Sumanth and asked him to walk out of the project. The reason is, Balakrishna has not paid his last respects to ANR when he passed away and so, fans of the Akkineni family are against Sumanth for acting with Balakrishna. So, will Sumanth listen to the pleas of the fans or accept the project irrespective of all these issues is yet-to-be-known.
The film is being directed by Krish Jagarlamudi and is produced by Nandamuri Balakrishna. Rana Daggubati is playing Chandra Babu Naidu, the present Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. The film is being shot at popular studios in Hyderabad and is going to release during Sankranti.
