When quizzed why he always looks like he is in a deep thought, NTR opined that it could be because of his loneliness during the childhood. Though there are a lot of relatives with him, he said that he was completely a mumma's boy and his world consisted only of his mom and him.
NTR agrees that he was a mischievous child and added that he was still hyper until his son was born. He said that he now feels like an elderly person with a great responsibility and has hence stopped being a brat himself.
Family Distancing Him
When asked if he is also lonely now, NTR clarified that he was close to his father and brothers even in his childhood, but the bondage has only got stronger now. And about how the extended family is trying to isolate him now, he said that he do not let them bother him much, as it will stop his own growth.
NTR confessed that he is very spiritual and believes in Karma. "Any good or bad a man does will reciprocate in this birth only. I believe there is surely a supernatural power and i attribute my good fortune to the good deeds my parents did."
When asked how he got hold of the language that well, NTR attributed that to his Telugu teacher in school, who made sure he gets the language right. He added that he feared if his son calls him dad, but is happy that he is calling him 'Nanna'.
NTR said that he cannot sit in a place and read books but would love to listen to people talking and learn his lessons from the intellectual people. He said that he holds a great respect for people who can write and added that he might write his auto biography when he gets old.
On a lighter note, NTR shared that he loves to cook for his mother and wife and does it when he finds time.
On the other hand, Nannaku Prematho is all set to hit screens on 13 January and NTR is not leaving any stoned unturned to promote the film. Amidst the tug of war between Nannaku Prematho, Dictator, Soggade Chinni Nayana and Express Raja, NTR wants to prove his hold in the market by spinning some craze numbers on the first day and is hence promoting the film quite aggressively.
