Senior Writer Paruchuri Gopalakrishna has drawn comparisons between Sr NTR and Jr NTR. He has got a valid reason to do so! Let's have a look at his theory...
In 1995, Paruchuri Gopalakrishna was on his way to Rajahmundry in a Train for a shoot. That's when Director Gunasekhar was spotted with a bunch of kids. When the Writer enquired what's happening, Gunasekhar revealed that he is shooting the project 'Bala Ramayanam' with Master NTR in lead role. Then, Tarak greeted Paruchuri with a namaskar. When the Writer asked the kid does he knew who he is, NTR replied: 'Yes, Paruchuri Brothers. It's My Grandfather who had offered this name to You'. It's then Paruchuri reached a conclusion that Tarak isn't an ordinary kid.
Upon knowing that Paruchuri hasn't brought his lunch box on that day, NTR offered the box he brought for himself to the Writer. When Paruchuri asked what would he eat, Jr informed him that his Mother Shalini had given him two lunch boxes. That's when Paruchuri had tears in eyes as he had similar experience with Sr NTR in the past.
In 1981, Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao was penning dialogues for a movie. Producer asked Paruchuri Gopalakrishna to write lyrics for a song but the Writer refused the offer upon knowing that his Guru C Narayana Reddy was also hired to provide lyrics for the same track to choose the best one among them. Then, Producer asked Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao how could his Younger Brother have lunch on his film set if he isn't working for his project. Annoyed with it, Paruchuri Brothers left the set after offering the entire script to the Producer. Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao refused to eat anything on that day as he was so upset. That's when, The Writers decided to meet NTR who got injured while shooting for 'Sardaar Paparayudu', so that it would calm down them a bit. After a small chit chat with him, NTR enquired the Writers whether they had lunch. Paruchuri Brothers told him that they will eat something at a nearby hotel. Soon, NTR said what is the need for them to have lunch at a hotel on festival day (Vinayaka Chavithi). He invited them for lunch with his family members. Soon after they sat down on the dining table, NTR introduced Paruchuri Brothers to his kin and commented it's a privilege to have lunch with 'Saraswathi Putrulu' on festival day. Paruchuri Brothers had tears in their eyes at that time to hear such words from a Great Man.
