There are reports doing the rounds in a section of the Andhra press which suggest friction and tension between director Krish Jagarlamudi and Telugu superstar Nandamuri Balakrishna over their bio-pic on Balakrishna’s father the iconic actor-politician N T Rama Rao.
However, the director Krish completely shuts down all hearsay saying, “I don’t know where these stories are coming from. Because Balakrishnaji and I are on the best of terms. Our bonding has only been strengthened as we set out to make a film on his great father.”
Krish says he discovered so many unknown facets of NTR’s personality while making the two-part film. He describes it as an “enriching and rewarding journey.”
Stories suggest that Balakrishna was unhappy with the decision to make his father ’s biopic in two parts.
But Krish avers it was always part of the plan to depict NTR’s acting career in the first part and his political career in the second part.
“Let NTR Kathanaykukdu release this Friday and all speculation will stop,” promises Krish.
Krish was in the news recently for his spat with Kangana Ranaut over the credits for this season’s big hit Manikarnika.
