A Risk For Balakrishna?
NTR was the biggest matinee idol and mass leader of his time. Many in the industry still regard him as a synonym for success. Recreating his aura is a big challenge for Balakrishna. If he succeeds, he'll be able to prove that he is an actor par excellence. However, if the response is not that good then it might leave NBK fans heartbroken.
