NTR
Jr

The breakout star of S.S. Rajamouli’s 2023 Oscar and Golden Globe winner “RRR” was born into a film family, with his late grandfather — N.T. Rama Rao for whom he was named — being one of India’s most revered actors and well-known politicians. He debuted as a child actor in 1991 with “Brahmarshi Viswamitra”, written, directed and produced by his grandfather, and as a leading man with 2001’s “Ninnu Choodalani.” His breakthrough came that year with Rajamouli’s “Student No. 1,” and they would go on to work together in “Simhadri” (2003) and “Yamadonga” (2007). NTR Jr, as he is known, has the chameleon-like ability to slip into any role while maintaining the larger-than-life hero quality that is essential for mainstream Indian cinema success. Next up are the first installment in the two-part epic revenge drama “Devara” — the actor’s 30th film — and his Bollywood debut “War 2,” which is part of the industry’s spy universe.
