Naga Chaitanya impressed everyone with his role in Mahanati. He was seen as Akkineni Nageswara Rao in the film. Director Krish who is making biopic on NTR seems to have got impressed with Naga Chaitanya. He has requested him to play the role again in this film.
ANR was a good friend of NTR. They have acted in many films together and also have been contemporaries. But this never affected their relation outside. The families too maintain good relations even now.
Krish has already approached Chaitanya in this regard. We will have to wait and see if Chaitanya will want to essay ANR's role once again.
