Ntr in his illustrious career did 28 films and his 29th happens to be the most awaited film RRR, a multi starrer with Ram Charan under Rajamouli's direction. He also lined up projects with Trivikram Srinivas and Prashant Neel. Heroes due to their busy schedules reject few good films and at the same time do films rejected by other stars.
Ntr rejected many films but there is a sentiment in the industry that when Ntr rejects a project it will turn out to be a blockbuster. Many of Ntr rejects are done by Ravi Teja and he attained stardom.
All Ravi Teja's hits like Kick, Bhadra, and Krishna first came to Ntr and due to his busy schedules, he rejected those films.
Even Allu Arjun's hit film Arya first came to Ntr but for some reason he did not like it. Sukumar then went to Allu Arjun and the film turned out to be a blockbuster. Similarly, Surender Reddy narrated Athanokkade sorry to Ntr. He rejected it, but later did Ashok. Ntr similarly rejected Kick and did Oosaravelli. Vinayak after Aadi narrated Dil to Ntr but he rejected the college story as he earlier did a similar story.
Vamsi Paidipally planned to cast Ntr in Karthi's role in Oopiri. However Ntr rejected as there was a scene in which Karthi holds the feet of Nagarjuna. Even Mahesh Babu's blockbuster Srimanthudu first went to Ntr but due to delay, Koratala went to Mahesh Babu. Koratala who worked with Ntr in Brudavanam narrated Srimanthudu story to Ntr. Koratala later gave hit to Ntr with Janatha Garage.
When Anil Ravipudi narrated Pataas to Kalyan Ram, he felt that the story suits Ntr. But Anil said he would do the film only with Kalyan Ram. Had Ntr did Patas, it would have changed his range. Srikanth Addala narrated Brahmostavam to Ntr.
But Ntr escaped and Mahesh Babu got booked and got a huge shock. Except for Brahmostavam, all his rejections turned out to be blockbusters.
