It has been three months since his blockbuster hit Janatha Garage landed and Jr NTR has been looking for a good script to lock his dates. However, nothing seems to have impressed the actor.
Meanwhile, an industry source revealed that the actor took out time to hear out director KS Ravindra’s (Bobby) script. The Sardar Gabbar Singh director has narrated the story but Tarak is yet to give a nod to the script, the source added. Also in the race is Ala Modalaindi fame director Anil Ravipudi who is vying with Bobby for his script. Ravipudi also said to have narrated his script to Tarak, but seems that actor is taking his time finalize his next flick.
The buzz is that if Tarak likes the script, Kalyanram will produce the film under NTR Arts banner. Some reports suggest that the news will be out not before next week.
While Tarak is riding high on the success of Janatha Garage, director Bobby desperately needs another big-ticket star as his recent release Sardar Gabbar Singh casting Powerstar Pawan Kalyan got a cold reception from Tollywood audience.
Tarak and Mohanlal starrer Janatha Garage proved to be a blockbuster hit and became the second fastest grosser in Tollywood after Baahubali. The film also joined the Rs100-crore club. The film got a huge response from Malayalam fanbase of Mohanlal too. With reportedly a Rs 40-crore budget for the movie, Janatha Garage has already made more than thrice as much amount, closing the window at Rs 140 crore. The combination of big names like Jr NTR, Mohanlal, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Nithya Menen, Koratala Siva and Devi Sri Prasad had created a lot of hype and expectations about the film much before its release.
