NTR zeroed for Gunashekar’s Veera Abhimanyu

NTR-gunashekarTollywood creative director Gunashekar after giving a blockbuster hit with Rudhramadevi, which was based on Kakatiya dynasty , is now eyeing on part of Hindu epic war drama .

Gunasekhar is planning to make a period film with title  Veera Abhimanya, based on life of Mahabharata warrior Abhimanyu, son of Arjuna.

There was buzz that, Allu Arjun who played the role of ‘Gona Ganna Reddy’ would be casted for the ‘Abhimanyu’ role. But to a surprise, Gunashekar is keen to cast Jr. NTr for the role as the actor is well versed to such roles .

Gunashekar approached NTR much before Rudhramadevi but it could not materialise . Now again this creative director has reportedly approached the actor and NTR too showing interest on the project.

Interestingly, Jr.NTR’s grandfather played Lord Krishna role in Veera Abhimanyu or Veerabhimanyu – a 1965 Telugu film in which Shobhan Babu played Abhimanyu role.
