With the release of Balakrishna's NTR biopic and Ram Gopal Varma's Lakshmi's NTR, it would seem that biographical stories are soon going to become a fad in the Telugu industry. Many filmmakers are scrambling to find suitable material and stories which would make good biopics.
Director Vamshi Krishna is going to be making a biopic on Tiger Nageswara Rao, a notorious thief in Stuvartupuram in the 70's. There was much speculation as to who would be essaying the titular role with names of biggies, Rana Daggubati, Nani and Naga Chaitanya cropping up. The latest in this regard is that Bellamkonda Srinivas may be playing the lead role. While the news is yet to be confirmed, sources say Bellamkonda Srinivas is excited to play the role of Tiger Nageswara Rao, who has known as the Indian Robin Hood. An official confirmation is awaited.
