Tarakaratna says that he is playing a mature character in the film Nandeeshwarudu. Interpreted from the Kannada movie 'Deadly Soma', he says that the story has been rehashed to suit the nativity of Andhra Pradesh. Directed by Sreenu Yarajala, the film has action, sentiment and music.
"I agreed to do the film only after taking into consideration the story. We have not used 'punch' dialogues for the sake of using them. They have been incorporated in the right proportion", says Tarakaratna.
Jagapathi Babu is playing a cop here. His is a key role. The hero is paired opposite Sheena.
Clashing with Businessman and Bodyguard this Sankranthi, Nandeeshwarudu seems to be deriving its strength from its story.
Tarak says that people may call him by any name they wish even though he has changed his name to NTR as per numerology. Speaking in a philosophical manner, he said that success and failure were a part of life. "Balakrishna babai always tells me that we should learnt from our experiences and keep moving forward", he said. He is ready to do a negative role, like the one he did in Ravi Babu's Amaravathi.
