The only Indian hero who had a considerable market in Japan is Superstar Rajinikanth. Withi his animated gestures and mannerisms, he has made a huge fan following in Japan and other oriental countries. Now, it looks that our own NTR Junior is making some serious inroads into Japanese markets.
Fuji TV, the most broadcast channel in Japan had sent a team to India for a documentary on NTR and post the broadcast, the response has been good and it's now taking a step further. NTR's 2012 hit 'Badshah' is being dubbed into Japanese language for a theatrical release. It's learnt that NTR's dances have mesmerized the audiences there, especially the youngsters.
With an attempt to encash the craze, NTR's earlier hits like Yama Donga, Simhadri and Student No. 1 are also being considered for dubbing. NTR will in all likelihood be attending the Japan Indian Film Festival this year as a special guest.
