It was recently revealed that Bollywood actress Vidya Balan was all set to make her debut in Tollywood with the bio-pic on matinee idol-turned-chief minister N T Ramarao.
Now the latest update is that she is said to be taking home Rs 1.5 crore as her remuneration for being part of the movie.
Interestingly, Vidya will play Basavatarakam, the wife of NTR, in this movie, which has NTR’s son Nandamuri Balakrishna in the lead role.
A happy Vidya says, “People know Basavatarakam as NTR’s wife, but she was not really a public figure. People knew of her but they didn’t know her.”
She added: “That was interesting for me as an actor. There has not been much material in the public domain about her. That’s basically the preparation I am doing…this will be my first Telugu film so it’s exciting.”
The movie directed by Krish has Dr Rajasekhar, Jisshu Sen Gupta and Sachin Khedkar in key characters. The film is being bankrolled by Balakrishna, Sai Korrapati and Vishnu Induri.
