- Nandamuri Balakrishna played the role of Bhishma
- Removal from ‘NTR’ due to length
- Balayya released those stills on the occasion of Bhishma Ekadashi today
‘Bhishma’ is a 1962 film based on the story of Bhishmacharya in the Mahabharata. NT Rama Rao played the role of Bhishma in this film. This character means a lot to Balakrishna. Therefore, Balakrishna played this role for the movie ‘NTR – Kathanayakudu’. Some scenes were filmed. However, as the length increases, the Bhishma scenes are removed. With this, the audience could not see Balakrishna as Bhishma. Therefore, today on the occasion of Bhishma Ekadashi, Balayya released stills related to his Bhishma character.
Nandamuri Balakrishna said on this occasion .. ” I like the character of Bhishma. My father played the role of Bhishma beyond his age and received special acclaim from the audience. I like the movie, the character of Bhishma played by my father in it. That is why we shot the scenes of Bhishma in the movie ‘NTR – Kathanayakudu’. In it I played Bhishma. However, due to the length, the scenes could not be kept in the film. Today, on the occasion of Bhishma Ekadashi, I would like to share the photos of the character with the audience and the fans.
