NTR Mahanayakudu, the biopic of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, is turning out disaster at the box office. NTR Mahanayakudu, directed by Krish, which was released on 22nd February, has created records in several areas as it has registered zero shares. The film didn't quite satisfy the audience as it had a few flaws. Both parts of NTR biopic- NTR Kathanayakudu and NTR Mahanayakudu stood as the biggest loss venture in Telugu Film Industry.
NTR Kathanayakudu created the record with 77% (Rs 52 Cr) losses whereas NTR Mahanayakdu collected just Rs. 2.12 Cr on its opening day. The Balakrishna and Vidya Balan starrer failed to bring in crowds to the theatres. NTR biopic was split into two instalments. While NTR Kathanayakudu showcased on NTR's life on celluloid whereas NTR Mahanayakudu focuses his political life. Balakrishna played the role of his father NTR whereas Vidya Balan played NTR’s first wife Basavatarakam.
