Rana Daggubati unveiled his look from a biopic on former actor and Andhra Pradesh chief minister NT Rama Rao. He will portray NTR's son-in-law Chandrababu Naidu in the biopic. Tweeting about his character, he wrote, “What an honour it is to play the role of the Honourable Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Mr N Chandrababu Naidu in the 'NTR' biopic. Thank you sir for giving us your valuable time.”

Daggubati tweeted a still from the film, showing it's a replica of Chandrababu's younger days. The CM married NTR's third daughter Bhuvaneswari in 1980. Directed by Krish J, the movie will be jointly produced by N Balakrishna, who plays the titular role in the movie, Vishnu Induri and Sai Korrapati. Actress Vidya Balan has been roped in to play NTR's wife Basavatarakam.

Also in the project is Bengali actor Jisshu Sengupta, who plays LV Prasad in the biopic. “It's a huge honour to be able to represent such a sincere visionary as LV Prasad. As a producer, his films had the signature of telling catastrophic romances with theatrical characters backed by some memorable music,” Jisshu said. Makers plan to release the film on January 9, next year.
