Vani Vishwanath, who claimed her maternal ancestry to Nagari town and expressed her urge to contest from the Nagari Assembly constituency on behalf of the TDP, said, “ If you ask a Telugu audience that who is a godlike actor, they will take the name of Sr.NTR. He is in the mind of Telugu people like a Lord Rama and Lord Krishna. I feel it genuine to request Ramu to drop the idea to make a movie on Sr.NTR. NTR’s life is just not ordinary, and it is linked with the ocean of his fans. I feel the film, targeting NTR personally, will damage his image, and also hurt the sentiments of NTR’s fans.”
Vani added that she had met Lakshmi Parvati for the first time in 1992 during the shoot of Samrat Ashok. NTR himself introduced her to me. Later, when the TDP returned to power in mid-90s, I went to NTR’s house and met the couple.” She further said, “If anything goes wrong I will be the first person as NTR‘s fan will hold a dharna in front of RGV’s house. RGV is popular for making movies for business and controversy. As a fan of NTR, I request RGV to stop making this film.”
On the work-side, Vani Vishwanath, was last seen in Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas and Rakul Preet Singh starrer ‘Jaya Janaki Nayakka’ directed by Boyapati Srinu. On the other hand, Roja has clarified stating that she will think if she is offered to perform the role of Lakshmi Parvati in RGV’s Lakshmi’s NTR.
In retort, RGV said, “Vani garu! I have no house to get a dharna staged by you in front of my home. I usually roam on roads. Even if you wish to roam on roads in search of me, your feet may get ruptured.”
