Nandamuri Balakrishna has taken it upon himself to depict the life of his father N.T. Rama Rao who was an iconic actor and a former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh as well. Made in two parts, Kathanayakudu and Mahanayakudu, the biopic is directed by Krish Jagarlamudi and features Balakrishna himself in the titular role. The first part NTR Kathanayakudu released today and fans are going gaga over the film. And as the celebrations are underway, the makers received a huge jolt in the form of piracy. Within hours of release, the biopic has been leaked online and is available for download on the most notorious site TamilRockers. This pirate site has been a thorn in the skin for filmmakers in South Indian and many recent films including Rajinkanth’s 2.0 has been leaked on it earlier. The makers of NTR Kathanayakudu are now said to be working with concerned authorities in getting the copies pulled down from the pirate sites.
