Marking the auspicious occasion of Bheeshma Ekadasi today, Nandamuri Balakrishna has unveiled the look of portraying the mythological character of Bheeshma from the epic Maha Bharatam. However, these stills are not new but they are from NTR Biopic which he played in two parts as NTR Kathanayakudu and NTR Mahanayakudu.
The ‘Simha’ actor revealed that he portrayed the character in the biopic but it was trimmed in the editing. The Nandamuri scion expressed that Bheeshma was one of the favourite characters of his legendary father NT Rama Rao, which he essayed with much conviction in his cine career.
Nata Simha clarified that he felt like sharing these pics on a special occasion with his fans and audience. NTR biopic was started a couple of years back in the direction of Teja, but due to reasons unknown, Krish ended up directing it in two parts.
Balakrishna worked hard with divine sincerity to play his father. But, the result at the box-office disappointed both his fans and himself. Anyhow, it gave an opportunity for Balayya to portray several of the roles played by his father, the great NT Rama Rao who stood as an epitome of stardom in movies as well as in politics.
