Did Varma get his onscreen NTR for Lakshmi’s NTR?

Controversial director Ram Gopal Varma has been in news from the last week with the announcement of the most hyped project, Lakshmi’s NTR. As this flick has become a reality, all are excited about the lead actor who plays the role of late NTR.

Varma is known for his success rate when it comes to handling real-life incidents and biopics. One cannot understand how he is managing to get the perfect casting for his projects. Be it the mighty series of Rakta Charitra or Killing Veerappan or The Attacks of 26/11 or the Vangaveeti; he brought life to the characters with amazing casting. Now for his favorite project Lakshmi’s NTR, already the movie buffs and film enthusiasts narrowed down one name and the same name is now hugely speculated to be the onscreen NTR. The actor is none other than the Collection King Mohan Babu.

Mohan Babu has a deep bonding with the late legend NTR and the whole Telugu world is well aware of it. On top of it, he has seen NTR so close such that the height, attire, acting skills, subtle expressions and dialogue delivery are close to NTR as well. Coming to the personal interests, Mohan Babu maintains good relationships with the YSRCP leaders who are bankrolling this project. So the chances are more for Mohan Babu than any other actor in Tollywood. Varma already worked with Mohan Babu for the flick Rowdy and they got along well. So it obvious that Varma would cast Mohan Babu as onscreen NTR and let us wait for his official announcement.
