The rivalry between Young Tiger NTR and Natasimha Balakrishna is well known. It all started when the ruling TDP of which Balakrishna is the MLA from Hindupur, denied permission for the benefit shows of NTR’s film Naannaku Premato. This continued even for Janata Garage.
Some of the Nandamuri fans, claiming to be Balakrishna fans even sent messages asking people not to watch those films. Later many tried to bring both of them together but things didn’t materialise.
Balakrishna too in his interviews didn’t talk about NTR while NTR too avoided references to Balakrishna. It is known that Balakrishna’s Dictator and NTR’s Naannaku Premato clashed at the box office during Sankranti few years back. Now many are wondering whether Balakrishna and NTR will fight again on silver screen.
It is known that Balakrishna is romancing Shriya and Muskin in Paisa Vasool under Puri Jagannath’s direction and the film is slated for Dasara release. NTR is romancing Nivetha Thomas and Rashi Khanna for his upcoming entertainer Jai Lava Kusa under Bobby’s direction.
But sources say NTR is keen to avoid confrontation with Balakrishna. A source shares “Presently key scenes between the Jr NTR and the two female leads are being shot on a special set at RFC,” Source adds “Balakrishna’s film has already been announced for a Dasara release and Jr NTR doesn’t want to compete with his uncle. So, he now plans to release the film a bit early. And the shoot has been planned accordingly,”
