NTR Makers Cashing In On YSR Brand Image

'NTR - Kathanayakudu' released Worldwide on January 9th. There were mixed response from public on the portrayal of real life characters and incidents shown by the Makers.

NTR Biopic raised many questions. Balakrishna keeps boasting about his blood & breed. What if KV Reddy hadn't recommended NTR for Pathala Bhairavi? What if KV Reddy hadn't insisted on NTR playing Sri Krishna in 'Mayabazar'? Had if Nagireddy and Chakrapani remained firm on their decision, NTR might have quit films and gone back to his native place.

Inclusion of YS Rajasekhar Reddy's role in the NTR Biopic raised many eye-brows. This seems to be more like a precautionary measure to slightly balance the Pro-TDP Approach. In a sequence, Naidu & YSR could be seen sitting side-by-side in the Assembly. It's like Makers have been using the brand image of YSR to market their movie. In Part 1, Chandrababu Naidu introduces YSR to NTR as his friend in Congress Party. This is an attempt to raise curiosity among YSR Fans about 'NTR - Kathanayakudu'.

YSR was the Opposition Leader when NTR was the Chief Minister. Screen Time of YSR role could be much more in 'NTR Mahanayakudu'.
