The dashing Rana Daggubati is one of the most popular and successful names in the Telugu film industry today. The young man enjoys a pretty strong fan following thanks to his good looks, charismatic personality, sincere performances and friendly nature. During his fairly eventful career, he has starred in quite a few big films and this has established him as a bankable name. At present, the Ghazi actor is working on the NTR biopic. And, recently he shot for the film at the former CM's Abids residence.
While talking about the NTR biopic, Rana told a leading website that the mass leader was his favourite hero and added that he learnt a lot about mythology because of his films. He went on to add that shooting at his house was an unforgettable experience for him.
"From the time I was a child I was fascinated by NTR, his films and politics, his influence on society and on Telugu as a language. So, getting an opportunity to recreate his life was a big deal for me. 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. It's been left intact, just touched up a bit to show what it looked like back in the day. Recreating his story in his own home was surreal and probably will be my most memorable day in my life in films," he added.
In case you did not know, the NTR biopic is being directed by Krish and features Balakrishna in the titular role. In it, Rana will reportedly be playing Chandrababu Naidu. The film also features Vidya Balan and Sumanth in the lead. Vidya will be playing NTR's wife in the film, while Sumanth will be playing his grandfather/Telugu legend ANR.
The film is slated to hit the screens sometime next year.
