With the makers of Superstar Prabhas Adipurush releasing a new poster featuring the actor and heroine Kriti Sanon in the traditional Sitarama with Lakshmana and Hanuman poses, fans got rejoiced on the eve of Sri Rama Navami. What’s more surprising is that, while discussing Prabhas, some north audience are talking about Jr NTR now, for a reason.
Apparently, the thought of Prabhas playing the role of Lord Rama on the silver screen is surely a surprise and shocker too. While no one is making Ramayana as a film these days, in earlier days, we have the likes of Sr NTR, Sobhan Babu, Suman in Telugu and Arun Goyal in Hindi, wearing Lord Rama getup. In the present generation, only Nandamuri Balakrishna has done it, but the north audience is not aware of the Sri Rama Rajyam movie. They are now talking that even RRR star Jr NTR played the role of Rama when he was just 13 years old.
In the Gunasekhar directorial Bala Ramayanam, Jr NTR has played the role of Lord Rama back in 1997 and it was a super hit at the box office. As the actor turned out to be super popular after his Bheem act in RRR, Bollywood folks are now talking about his Lord Rama avatar on the eve of Sri Rama Navami.
