Atlee praises Jr NTR at 'Whistle' press meet
Director Atlee has delighted Jr NTR fans by hinting of a possible collaboration with the Young Tiger in the future. He praised the 'Aravindha Sametha' star at Vijay's 'Whistle' pre-release press meet.
"Jr NTR sir is a sweet heart. He has always been supportive of me. Whenever a film of mine releases, I get a call from NTR sir. He appreciates my work and encourages me to push the envelope. I respect him a lot", Atlee said. When fans asked when he is going to direct NTR, Atlee said, "It will happen".
Atlee's next has been almost confirmed with Shah Rukh Khan and the film with NTR may happen after he is done with that Bollywood project.
'Whistle' is the Telugu dubbed version of Vijay and Atlee's Tamil movie 'Bigil'. This is the third film from the actor-director combo after 'Theri' ('Police' in Telugu) and 'Mersal' ('Adirindhi'). Mahesh Koneru is presenting the movie in Telugu, which releases on 25th October.
