On 21 December, 2018 Telugu director Krish Jagarlamudi has released the trailer of Kadanayakudu, a film based on the cine and political life of senior NTR who was considered as a great actor and the founder of Telugu Desham Party which is now being head by N.Chandrababu Naidu. On the same day we have witnessed a trailer of Lakshmis NTR directed by controversial director Ram Gopal varma.
Kirish movie Kadanayakudu has an immense response from the telugu states and has 26lakh views in less than 24 hours. With promising visuals, music and a huge star cast, the movie seems to be a sensation just like the recently viewed biopic on telugu legendary actress Savitri( Mahanati). But we have witnessed something unusual on the same evening when controversial director Ram gopal Varma released a song by the name “Venupotu” which had the older visuals of senior NTR with Chandrababu Naidu and the lyrics sounding against him.
Both the trailers are being highly appreciated by two different sets of audience. Some feel that the Krish’s Kadanayakudu is just trying show the early life of senior NTR, senior NTR’s entry into the film industry and later setting up the Telugu Desham Party after a lot of vigorous campaigning against then Congress party. Ram gopal verma Lakshmi’s NTR seems to be completely different, which had older visuals of senior NTR, Chandrababu Naidu and some of the controversial photos like that of Viceroy hotel. Now this trailer has lead to major controversy as Chadrababu Naidu is the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh and the Chief of Telugu Desham Party.
