Ram Gopal Varma announced the making of NTR's biopic and it shocked all NTR fans. Then, there was talk that Balakrishna would be playing the late legendary actor.
However, after persistent requests from fans and well-wishers, Balakrishna had to drop the idea of working with Ram Gopal Varma.
While none were against the idea of a biopic, there was general consensus against RGV directing the film, given his eccentric films in the recent past. So, the film did not take off beyond the idea stage.
However, when Balakrishna was asked about the same during a recent media interaction, he said he will be launching the biopic next year.
"We have not dropped the idea. There was an issue about the director. In a week's time, everything including the name of the director will be decided," he said.
In the past, Ram Gopal Varma created quite a flutter when he announced the biopic. Now, it remains to be seen who will direct the project.
Presently, Balakrishna is working with KS Ravikumar for "Jaya Simha". After this, he will do a film with Boyapati.
