“Mahanati” has choked millions of hearts showcasing how the brightest star has faded away from the sky leaving a deep footprint on every Telugu person.
While Tollywood is currently sinking in the delightful yet heavy-hearted feelings raked up by this Nag Ashwin directorial, as the life of legendary actress Savitri sounded a better story than any of the films she’s part of, an interesting discussion is going on about another prestigious biopic.
None other than “NTR” will be that big biopic Tollywood is eagerly waiting for and recently director Teja opted out of this film pushing Balayya to handle direction part as well. Now many are expressing a desire to see Nag Ashwin direct the film as he handled Savitri’s biopic quite well. The idea sounds pretty good, but there are some practical problems here.
To be frank, Nag Ashwin himself got pretty excited with the story of Savitri and has done almost a year research before going to pitch the story and going for the shoot. And now, if he starts reading about NTR, he might take a year or so to understand what is to be made. The big question is, leaving his own thought process, will he just pick up the script developed under Balayya’s supervision and direct it? Even if he does it, can he do similar justice to the story like he did for Mahanati?
If one can find answers for those doubts, then Nag Ashwin could surely wear director’s hat for NTR biopic too!!
