Popular Telugu actor Sai Kumar will play Jr. NTR's father in upcoming Telugu drama Janatha Garage, which went on the floors yesterday, in Hyderabad. The film, which will be directed by Koratala Siva, also stars Malayalam superstar Mohanlal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Nithya Menen and Unni Mukundan.
"Sai Kumar will be seen as NTR's father and Mohanlal will be seen as his uncle. This is a family drama and it focuses on the relationship between Sai Kumar and Mohanlal and the rift that separates their families apart," said a source.
Incidentally, Sai Kumar essayed the father's role in Kalyan Ram's Patas too, which released last year. The film went on to become a huge hit and has changed the career graph of Kalyan Ram, shooting him up back in the race.
Looking at the coicidence, Nandamuri fans are expressing that Hari Krishna should have played both the roles, which would have been a perfect casting of the real life father and sons.
On the other hand, NTR will join the sets from March 5. The film, which is produced by Mythri Movie Makers, will hit the screens on August 12.
