It is reliably learnt that Chandrababu Naidu is after the makers of NTR, the much-awaited biopic of legendary NTR, to wrap up and release it by Sankranthi 2019. Apparently, Naidu has even directed the film's lead actor and producer Balakrishna to release the film on Jan 14, 2019 i.e much before the election code.
Naidu said to have directed Balayya to release the film for Sankranthi without any delay. Balayya too now kept all his works aside and is fully focusing only on the NTR biopic which was earlier delayed for various reasons including the replacement of director Teja with director Krish.
Even from trade perspective, this date (Jan 14, 2019) works well. Krish and Balayya's previous film Gautamiputra Satakarni, an epic, released for Sankranthi 2017 have become blockbuster and earned huge critical acclaim.
With already NTR has been hitting headlines every alternate day due to its casting coup, there is a great buzz in trade circuits on the film. This makes the film a hot cake. Now one has to wait and see whether the makers could able to pull it off and release it for Sankranthi. Ahead of the general elections 2019, all eyes are on NTR biopic.
