When asked about delivering a spade of flops after ‘Simhadri,’ NTR said, ‘I made my debut as a lead hero at the very young age of 17. By 20, I saw a mammoth success like ‘Simhadri’. I couldn’t handle the unprecedented stardom at such young age, and the result was a series of flops. It took a long time for me to realize my mistake and I can’t explain it now.’
Talking about politics, NTR said ‘I am tired of claiming my loyalty to Telugu Desam Party. I was, am and will always be a TDP worker. At present, my focus is only on movies, and politics will always remain secondary to films for me’.
