India will come to know about Telugu heroes: NTR

NTR is playing the role of the Telangana hero Komaram Bheem in Rajamouli's movie.  The magnum opus is set in the early 1920s. The film will hit the screens on 30 July 2020.   

About NTR's role:

Speaking about his role, NTR today said, "I will be speaking in the slang that Bheem spoke in.  This movie demands a lot from its actors.  We all have defined boundaries about Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem. Ram Charan and I are going beyond these boundaries in essaying the roles."

"As actors, it's a new experience for us to imagine what Alluri and Komaram Bheem would have been like before they became fighters.  Our minds were completely blank before we took up the movie.  It always helps if the actors have very limited information about the real-life persons they are playing.  This film will help me and Charan to grow as actors," NTR said.  

Preparing for the role:

"I and Charan participated in extensive workshops before the shoot.  The training we were given was fantastic.  The experience we have gained is immense.  This will help us in future as well.  I would like to thank Charan for accepting to share screen space with me without a second thought.  I am proud that we have made this happen.  This project happened only because of the confidence we have in Jakkanna," NTR added.  

"In the acting workshops, we enacted the way the real-life characters walked, behaved.  We had no referral point.  We have seen Krishna garu in the Alluri movie, but that is not how Alluri will be in this movie," NTR continued.  

Friendship with Rajamouli:

"This is my fourth outing with Jakkanna (Rajamouli).  It will always be a special film to me.  I just pray to God that we remain friends for ever," NTR said about his association with Rajamouli.

"The impact of RRR movie will be great.  India will come to know about the Telugu heroes we are playing," he signed off.
