      Balakrishna To Play Sr NTR Again? Deets Inside!


      Balakrishna, the undisputed 'Legend' of Telugu cinema, is gearing up for the release of the eagerly awaited Ruler, helmed by KS Ravikumar. The film has already piqued the curiosity, and this suggests that things are on track. With Ruler mania in full swing, here is some more exciting news for 'N' fans. As per a leading website, NBK is likely to play Tollywood thespian and his father Sr NTR in the much-hyped Tamil-Hindi bilingual Thalaivi, featuring Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut as former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

      Balakrishna played Sr NTR in the prestigious NTR Biopic, which hit screens in two parts (NTR Kathanayakudu and NTR Mahanayakudu) earlier this year amidst fanfare. Even though 'Nata Simha' received rave reviews for his performance, the Krish-helmed magnum opus sank without a trace. This hurt Balakrishna big time and refrained from mentioning the film again. As such, if he plays 'Annagaru' in Thalaivi, it might help him redeem himself.
