Is Vidya Balan playing Basavatarakam?

As it is a big project and that too of a senior actor as well as a successful politician, characters of many prominent personalities from films as well as politics should be featured in it and finding apt actors for those characters is a burdensome task to the director as well as the producer.

NTR, the biopic on the late actor Taraka Ramarao is yet to go on floors and the cast of the film has also not yet been decided so far. As it is a big project and that too of a senior actor as well as a successful politician, characters of many prominent personalities from films as well as politics should be featured in it and finding apt actors for those characters is a burdensome task to the director as well as the producer.

Director Teja and his team have been hunting for months to find suitable actor and the most important is about who will be playing the role of Basavatarakam, NTR’s wife. Even Nithya Menon was considered for this role but it did not work out. While a few other actors were also considered, a few turned down the role and some weren’t convinced with the deal. According to the buzz in the film circles, it is said that Vidya Balan may play the role of Basavatarakam and also that she has signed the project. The actor has been doing well in Bollywood and as she hails from Kerala, it is expected that the actor would know very much about late NTR. So, reports claim that the actor was offered good remuneration and has promised to manage her call sheets.

This way, the film can also be released in Hindi as Vidya will be able to draw attention from Bollywood towards the project. If Vidya is really on board, it is going to be one of the best things that can happen to this project.
