Balakrishna starrer NTR: Kathanayakudu depicting the life of the legendary Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao was released amidst huge expectations. Balakrishna himself produced the film alongside Sai Korrapati and Vishnu Iduri. The movie received positive critical acclaim all over but that didn't seem to translate into the box office numbers. As of the first week, NTR: Kathanayakudu worldwide box office gross stands at Rs. 33.6 Cr. The total distributor share the movie collected is about Rs. 19 Cr. This clearly shows that this biopic has been underperforming when compared to the expectations. The movie was sold for a humongous price. NTR: Mahanayakudu will hit the screens on 14 February 2019.
