The Baahubali actor Rana Daggubati will be playing Andhra Pradesh’s Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu in the NTR biopic. He already started shooting for the film, a few weeks ago. His look in the movie has been leaked and is going viral on social media.
He has lost a lot of weight to look like N Chandrababu Naidu. In the leaked photo, he is seen wearing a white linen shirt and sports a different hairdo, resembling Chandrababu Naidu. The cast and crew shot some important sequences in NT Rama Rao’s own apartment in Abids, Hyderabad.
In an interview Rana said, “My excitement doubled when the first call sheet I received for this film read ‘Location: NTR residence, Abids’. From that day to walking into that house was like travelling through history and time for me”. It was the same house where NTR lived, the room where he put on his make-up.
While, NTR’s son Balakrishna is seen reprising his father’s role, Vidya Balan will play the actor-politician’s wife Basavatarakam. Directed by Krish Jagarlamudi, the biopic also has Rakul Preet, Prakash Raj and Murli Sharma in pivotal roles.
