Character Artiste Chalapathi Rao made sensational comments in an interview given to a Youtube channel.

Jr NTR: Tarak is capable of doing any role. He got trained in dances and acting since childhood. But, He isn't tall enough to fit into roles like Ravanasurudu. It's not fair to talk about a person and his acting calibre. I can't object if someone comes forward to cast him as Ravana. It's up to the audience to pass the judgement.

Gundamma Katha Remake: I don't think it's a good idea why because nobody fits into NTR's role though ANR's romantic angle could be managed to some extent. Classic like Ramudu-Bheemudu and Gundamma Katha shouldn't be touched.

NTR's Successor: Neither Balakrishna nor Jr NTR are the true successors of Sr NTR. Nobody could match up to that Legend - 'Peddayanaku 10 kms Varaku Evaru Raleru!'.

Awards Ceremonies: NTR himself told Government Awards are useless & people's love is the ultimate award. Awards will be given to those Actors who are available and ready to accept them. When Industry shifted to Hyderabad, Organizers used to inquire if we will be in the city on that particular day to present the award.
