Rana Daggubati was roped to essay the role of Chandrababu Naidu in NTR Biopic. Initially, There were reports of Macho Hero appearing in three lengthy sequences - CBN's First Meeting With NTR, Babu-Bhuvaneswari Marriage & Role played by Chandrababu Naidu after Nadendla Bhaskar Rao's Revolt.
However, Krish Jagarlamudi decided to restrict the role of Rana Daggubati to one single lengthy sequence due to the runtime issues. 'NTR - Mahanayakudu' covers the political career of the legendary personality - Reason behind floating TDP, Poll Campaigning in 1983, Record Victory, August Crisis and Retaining Power. Krish will have to cover so much in just around 2-and-a-half hours. Focussing more on Chandrababu Naidu is like ignoring other family members. So, Makers will have to trim or remove few sequences involving Rana Daggubati.
One Key Sequence will be used to establish that Chandrababu Naidu used his expertise to help NTR become CM after August crisis in the 80s. Rana had recently took part in the shoot of a scene depicting Chandrababu taking TDP MLAs to New Delhi on a train to parade them for proving NTR's strength.
