JD To Play 'Chandrababu Naidu' In Lakshmi's NTR?

The announcement of biopic on NT Rama Rao’s life by filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, has created flutters in Andhra Pradesh. Since the film is focused on the last few years of NTR’s life which many see as an attempt to misalignment of a legendary icon’s image. RGV said that the film will go on the floors early 2018. As per RGV, Lakshmi’s NTR is based on the real incidents in the life of N.T. Rama Rao. He compared NTR’s life with the “Mahabharat” and said that only one chapter of epic will be filmed and would include the famous “Viceroy Hotel” episode.
According to the sources, Ram Gopal Varma is now keen on roping in J.D. Chakravarthy to play Chandrababu Naidu in Lakshmi’s NTR!. Not to forget, Chandrababu Naidu’s character will be portrayed more as a negative role in NTR’s biopic rather than as a politician. At the same time, we need a person who can dare a powerful politician like Chandrababu Naidu to perform his role in the movie. This is where J.D. Chakravarthy comes to RGV’s rescue!.
J.D. Chakravarthy, also Ram Gopal Varma’s student is known for his bold movies and acting skills. He had earlier proved himself in negative roles and is very likely to take up the role of Chandrababu Naidu in NTR’s biopic, on the request of RGV.
JD is already playing a key role in the pre-production work of Lakshmi’s NTR. He is also the mediator between Lakshmi Parvathi and Ram Gopal Varma. Currently, the veteran actor cum director is playing a key role in the finalization of the script work for the mega movie.
