Jr. NTR decided to join films at 18 years of age after acting in Balaramayanam. He did not want to sit around in his house when he has set his goal to become an actor at every young age. He learnt Carnatic dance forms like Kuchipudi and Bharatanatyam from a tender age.
His father, Nandamuri Harikrishna saw his passion and encouraged him as well. Even though he did not get much family support as he was seen as an outsider, he grew as a star hero with films like Student No.1, Aadi, Simhadri on the merit of his talent.
He showcased abilities to connect with Mass crowds by 21 - 22 years ago but he did not care about his weight. Coupled by downfall, he had to concentrate on his looks and changed himself with Yamadonga. He named SS Rajamouli as his favourite director after Simhadri.
He found good successes after weight loss like Adhurs but he couldn't fit himself into an image that is acceptable for all sectors of audiences. So, few more flops and hits followed him. He decided to go for a complete makeover with Puri Jagannath's Temper and from then on his films saw a continuous upswing at the box office.
Nannaku Prematho, Janatha Garage, Jai Lava Kusa and Aravindha Sametha became hits at the box office. Now, he is doing a film with his favourite director, SS Rajamouli and that too with Megapower star Ram Charan. It is the first time for a Mega family hero and Nandamuri family hero to come together for a film.
Fans have huge expectations for RRR. He preserved through flops and believed in his talent all the time. After hardships and loads of hard work, he is in the position that he is today as one of the Top stars of Telugu Cinema. Happy Birthday, Tarak aka Young Tiger, Jr. Nandamuri Taraka Ramarao.
