Natasimha Balakrishna is prestigiously making biopic on his late father NTR as two part series- NTR: Kathanayakudu that highlights his film career and NTR: Mahanayakudu which showcases his ups and downs in politics.
It is not a big secret that, the film will not show the vennupotu (backstabbing) episode of N Chandrababu Naidu. Then, what conclusion is given to NTR: Mahanayakudu? The second part actually begins with NTR floating Telugu Desam Party and it ends with the legendary actor turned politician taking on the backstabbing of Nandendla Bhaskar Rao.
For those who are unaware of NTR-Nadendla’s episode, after NTR swept the assembly elections in 1983, Bhaskara Rao joined his ministry as Finance minister. When NTR was away in the US to undergo treatment for chest pain, Congress gave support to Bhaskara Rao's group within TDP at a time. Since Congress was in power at the center and their nominee occupied the AP Governor's post, Bhaskara Rao became CM of Andhra Pradesh.
NTR returned from US, wore black clothes and launched a statewide yathra to protest the dismissal of his government. He called it a dharma yuddham, a war against the authoritarian and autocratic rule at the Centre, for restoration of democracy and safeguarding the Constitution. The central government recalled the governor and reinstalled NTR as CM – the only instance in political history of India when a dismissed CM was reinstated.
So, this climax will surely delight TDP biggies and cadre. But the question is how the commoners will receive it as NTR faced far worse betrayal than that!
