Jr. NTR is known for setting up the combos he wants to be a part off. The actor even though looks to wait for stories to come his way, if he really wants to work with any person, he tries as hard as he can to convince them without a doubt.
He had been asking Rajamouli to make a movie with him in a funny way, since the director finished Magadheera. We can see Jr. NTR asking the director directly at audio functions. But somehow, Rajamouli who did three movies with the actor and who is the major reason for his body transformation, did not decide to cast him in his movies.
Whenever asked about it, the director smiles and says, he will soon make a movie with him. The director admitted that after Chatrapathi he always wanted to make an huge movie with Prabhas, thus, Baahubali happened. Now, with director completely available, the actor wants to lock the combo for his next movie.
As per the sources, the actor is asking DVV Danayya and common friends of his and the director, to convince the director to confirm him as his lead. He did win Trivikram Srinivas and Koratala Siva’s affections the same way, but will he able to convince Rajamouli, that’s a million dollar question. At this moment, the director is still in confusion and he has pressure building from all corner to announce his next hero.
