Before Mahanati was released Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy and ‘NTR’ were the only biopics that were on news. But the legendary actress’ emotional drama appears to have inspired the Telugu film makers to make more biopics in future.
Latest news is that director Teja who left the biopic project of NTR is now reportedly planning to make one on hero Uday Kiran. On the other side plans are being discussed to make the biopic of former star heroine late Soundarya who was often compared to Mahanati Savitri.
Not just on movie stars but also political leaders are said to have been part of the new trend. Producer cum director Madhura Sreedhar had announced biopic of KCR last year while YSR’s Biopic Yatara starring Mammootty is already in progress. We will have to wait and see whether this new trend turns out advantageous or ends up as a bad idea.
