The biopic that is being made on the life of legendary actor and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao is one of the most awaited films, the film has gained a lot of attention since its announcement.
Actress Vidya Balan has been roped in to play the role of NTR’s wife Basavatarakam, it is Rakul Preet Singh who has been approached to play the role of yesteryear superstar Sridevi in the film.
Reports were surfacing for quite some time now, that Sonakshi Sinha or Shraddha Kapoor will be playing the role but all the guessing went in vain as makers cleared the air saying that Rakul will be essaying the role of Sridevi.
Producer Vishnu Induri told a website, "We haven't approached Sonakshi, Kangana [Ranaut] or Shraddha. Rakul Preet is our only choice as she's popular in the South, especially in Telugu films. We have shot almost 30 per cent of the movie. Vidya [Balan, who plays NTR's wife] has already shot for six days. We are working on Rakul's dates for now."
According to Induri, Rakul's role in the NTR biopic is a cameo with a song and a few scenes. NTR and Sridevi had acted together in 14 films and the former was instrumental in shaping Sridevi's career. It will be a great injustice to not mention her in the biopic of the legend.
