Hero Nani Agreed To Play The Role Of Nageswara Rao
When it comes to biopics, our heroes are little late than their Bollywood counterparts. While Bollywood has churned so many biopics already, Tollywood is just in the preliminary stage with Mahanti being their first, followed by NTR and Yaatra that will be released soon.
Apparently, Rana Daggubati was supposed to star in a couple of biopics, one of them deals with the life and times of a dreaded robber, while other one is about a famous wrestler. Yes, Rana is supposed to be the lead man of both the biopics, Stuartpuram based robber Tiger Nageswara Rao and wrestler Kodi Ramamurthy Naidu. But it looks like the actor will take up only one.
Though reasons are not known, Rana is said to have backed out from Tiger Nageswara Rao's biopic that will be directed by Vamsi Krishna of Kittu Unnadu Jagratha fame. And latest reports suggest that hero Nani agreed to play the role as he feels that biopics will bring the best out of him.
For the uninitiated, Tiger Nageswara Rao happens to be a robber hailing from Stuartpuram village in the 70s and has broken into banks and houses in various cities of the then Andhra Pradesh. He was shot dead in 1987 after a massive encounter.
