Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma on Thursday released the trailer of ‘Lakshmi's NTR’, a film on the life of actor-turned-politician N T Rama Rao, which has triggered a controversy in Andhra Pradesh ahead of the elections.The movie is about the former Chief Minister's second marriage to Lakshmi Parvathi, which divided the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) founder's family and ultimately led to his son-in-law N Chandrababu Naidu taking over the reins of the party and the government in 1995.
"Here is the trailer of the most intense and dramatic love story ever. Wish you all a very happy Valentine's Day," tweeted Varma. He later tweeted that the trailer had one million views in just one-and-half hours. He called it "Lord NTR blessing".This three-minute long trailer begins with the caption that the story is about the days following NTR's defeat in the 1989 elections.
The trailer deals with the dramatic entry of Lakshmi Parvathi, NTR's biographer, into his life, the opposition to the marriage in the legendary actor's family, his landslide victory in 1994 elections, the revolt by Chandrababu Naidu, the subsequent developments and finally NTR's death in 1996. Varma also tweeted that the theatrical trailer will release on February 22. "Whoever comes to the theatre to see 'Mahanayakudu' can see the trailer of 'Lakshmi's NTR.”
