It was not so easy for Sumanth to transform himself as his grandfather, for NTR biopic. In fact, it was a very big challenge for him and he has worked a lot to make sure that he can be up to the mark. "It was great working with Balakrishna garu. Not just his father's dialogues, he was even reciting my grandfather's dialogues without any mistake or repetition. He is an encyclopedia I say," said Sumanth who is happy about playing the role of his grandfather.
The actor is gearing up for the release of Subramanyapuram, which is happening on December 7 and is excited. Sumanth plays an atheist, a person who doesn't believe in the existence of god. But personally, he is a religious person. At the promotions of the film he said, "I keep going to temples, churches and mosques regularly. Personally, I believe in god. If I am shooting early in the morning and if there are any temples around, I make sure that I visit. But for this film, I had to change my mind completely before doing the shot."
Asked about eh work he has done for his grandfather's role and how he had performed, he said, "I neither want to imitate nor try to looks like a clone of my grandfather. So my work was somewhere in between acting and imitating him. Thankfully, I have a lot of his genes in me and I was surprised to see myself after the makeup. I looked very much similar to him. I feel blessed to have played his role in the film," Sumanth said. He also revealed that he will he will be seen in both the parts of the biopic.
