Jr. NTR’s Career at a Glance

When your grandfather is an actor and filmmaker with over 300 films to his name and your father too is an actor and producer, you seem to be destined to enter the film industry. This is what happened in the case of Jr. NTR who began making his mark as a child artiste in Telugu movies.

An early career highlight was his lead turn as the Hindu god Ram in Ramayanam, an adaptation of the religious epic Ramayan notably featuring an ensemble made out of only child actors.

However, it was his breakthrough as a lead actor in the 2001 romantic drama Ninnu Choodalani that marked the beginning of a stellar journey. Known for his dynamic screen presence and effortless portrayal of diverse characters, Jr. NTR quickly became a force to reckon with in the Telugu film industry.

Jr. NTR's ability to seamlessly transition between intense roles and light-hearted characters is evident in his filmography. Whether it's essaying the role of a righteous young man fighting against injustice in the coming-of-age action drama Student No. 1 or showcasing his comedic timing in Adhurs, he has displayed a remarkable range that resonates with audiences across demographics.

Moreover, his performance in films like the fantasy-action comedy Yamadonga showcased his willingness to push boundaries and experiment with unconventional roles, earning him both critical acclaim and commercial success. The 2007 hit found him starring in a double role as an orphaned thief and Yama, the Hindu god of death.

His collaborations with blockbuster auteur like SS Rajamouli have resulted in gargantuan successes such as the 2003 action film Simhadri and the 2022 Oscar-winning period epic RRR, where Jr. NTR's portrayal of powerful and charismatic characters garnered widespread acclaim.

RRR’s unprecedented popularity among global audiences paved a new career highlight for Jr. NTR who even got to attend award ceremonies like Golden Globes and the Oscars. While the Globe and Oscar-winning song “Naatu Naatu” didn’t find him sharing his foot-tapping chemistry with co-star Ram Charan, the Telugu star clearly made his presence felt in Hollywood.

Now, as he stars in the upcoming pan-Indian action drama Devara and plans to make his Hindi-language debut with the YRF Spy Cinematic Universe sequel War 2, Jr. NTR is only getting started.

Why is RRR Jr. NTR’s best movie to watch?

Unabashedly over-the-top and self-aware in its grandiose action theatrics, RRR honours overlooked freedom fighters in India’s colonial history while paving a new chapter in contemporary blockbuster filmmaking. Fresh off the success of his two-part Baahubali franchise, SS Rajamouli united Telugu titans Jr. NTR and Ram Charan as Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sitaram Raju, two revolutionaries who bring down the oppressive British empire to its knees (with a lot of explosions, gravity-defying hijinks, and an armada of CGI-rendered animals).

Instead of nitpicking any rational physics or historical accuracy, RRR makes for a highly entertaining watch with the triumphant song-and-dance number “Naatu Naatu” as an added bonus. Going through physical workouts to play the valiant co-hero, Jr. NTR has never looked this tougher and never danced this better. RRR will be remembered for its high-octane stunt choreography and its standout song which achieved the rare feat of India winning at the Oscars.
