Bad Luck: NTR Rejected 7 Blockbusters

Bad Luck: NTR Rejected 7 Blockbusters

Film industry is an extremely challenging world where success is hard to come by even for the top of the stars. This stands true in the case of Young Tiger NTR. After a series of miserable flops, NTR bounced back in full vigor with Puri Jagannadh's Temper. However, if one notices the list of films NTR rejected in his career, one can't help but feel sorry for NTR's bad luck.

After a grand success of his debut film Mirchi, writer-director Koratala Siva reportedly narrated the script of the latest blockbuster Srimanthudu, and even waited for several months to get NTR's nod. However, NTR chose to act in Puri's Temper and Koratala proceeded with Mahesh Babu and the rest is history.

Going back to the the early days of his career, NTR also rejected Surender Reddy's debut film Athanokkade, as he didn't want to act in another mass film after the sensational success of Simhadri. Athanokkade later made NTR's brother Kalyanram a bankable star in Tollywood. NTR further continued his rejection spree and said a big NO to Surender Reddy's Kick, which later catapulted Ravi Teja into the big league.

Not stopping here, NTR was also reluctant to act in his Aadi director VV Vinayak's Dil and Krishna, both the films which gave Nithiin and Ravi Teja their biggest hits in those days. Even Boyapati Srinu was listed in the league of directors to whom NTR said a firm NO. Boyapati Srinu's debut film Bhadra was first rejected by NTR, which then gave a memorable hit for Ravi Teja. However, NTR later teamed up with Boyapati Srinu for Dhammu, which was an average grosser at the box-office.

The Young Tiger is currently acting in the direction of Sukumar, to whom he said NO for his debut film Arya, which again became a blockbuster and launched a new star in Tollywood, Allu Arjun. While we can't claim that NTR failed in selecting the right script as he also gave some of the biggest ever blockbusters in Tollywood, we wish that he only scores superhits from now onwards.
