Jr NTR To Launch A Production House?

Jr NTR To Launch A Production House?

After Mahesh Babu who ventured into film production and floated his own banner GMB Entertainment, it is going to be the turn of Jr NTR. It is learnt that Tarak also has plans of producing his own films and likely to start his own banner very soon. Buzz in film circles is NTR is in plans to start his production after completing RRR.

In fact, several stars in Tollywood have tested their luck in production. Prabhas' close friends and relatives own and manage UV Creations. Nagarjuna owns Annapurna Studios on which he has bankrolled several films including the recent Manmadhudu 2 which again was a big disaster. Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan have started Konidela Production Company.

Both its production ventures Khaidi No. 150 and Sye Raa have incurred profits to Chiru and Charan. Venkatesh has Suresh Productions which is run by his brother Suresh Babu. Pawan Kalyan too turned producer and burnt his hands. Nandamuri Balakrishna too turned producer with NTR biopic films where he had made Kathanayakudu and Mahanayakudu on NBK Films.

As both the films turned out to be debacles, they have posted hefty losses to Balayya.  Jr NTR's step-brother Kalyan Ram too owns production house NTR Arts which has introduced the likes of Surender Reddy and Anil Ravipudi. Nithiin's family also owns Shresht Movies. Manchu family too has production and all their recent films were duds. Even the likes of Nara Rohit, Sree Vishnu own productions.

So, heroes turning into producer is not a new development. As stars are interested to turn into partners, they are keen to join the production as co-producers. Joining the bandwagon is NTR.
