Director PC Aditya who received Dadasahed Phalke and Nandi awards, has recently announced that he will be making the biopic of legendary actor T.L. Kantha Rao this year. He has been working on the script for a while and is almost done with the final version.
Director Aditya visited the native place of Kantha Rao to know his childhood life and took permission from his family members as well for the biopic. Pre-production work is going on and the film would hit the floors in mid-August.
Kantha Rao was a star hero in 1950s and 60s but then witnessed a downfall later. Director Aditya says that the biopic is mostly about his downfall and the life he led after lack of opportunities. Characters of legendary actors Sr NTR, ANR and actresses Krishna Kumari and Rajasri will be seen in the movie.
Coming to director Aditya, he made 100 short films within 100 days which took him to the lime light and gave him Dadasaheb Phalke award. He also has his name on Limca book of records and was honored with doctorate. Hope he makes the biopic of Kantha Rao as interesting as Savitri’s Mahanati.
