NTR- Kathanayakudu, the biopic on Legendary Actor and former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh NT Rama Rao, had hit theatres on January 8th amidst too much anticipation from Balakrishna Fans. But contrary to expectations, the movie turned out to be a box-office dud, owing mainly to the larger than life persona of NTR Portrayed in the movie, leaving the audience with hardly anything new to take home. This keeps the pressure on the release of NTR – Mahanayakudu.
The first part charted the journey of NTR’s cinematic journey and ended with the announcement of his political journey. So, in the second part – NTR Mahanayakudu, late NTR’s political sojourn will be shown.
Earlier Mahanayakudu has been expected to release on Feb 7 but due to some changes in the script part, it got postponed to Feb 14th. Gradually, it is set to release on Feb 21st considering the technical aspects and censoring of the film. Unofficial reports say that Balakrishna is planning to release the second part of NTR Biopic on three days before Maha Nadu that is to be on Feb 28th or March 1st.
As we know Director Krish and producer Sai Korrapati distributed Kathanayakudu in a couple of areas. With its poor box-office collection, Krish has suffered a loss of Rs 1.50cr. Keeping Kathanayakudu aside, there is an agreement for Mahanayakudu should screen the premiere in the USA on Feb 5th. But with a consistent change in release dates and no official announcements about release dates the premiere show is also postponed.
