Jr NTR: News

Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao Jr., popularly known as Jr. NTR in the professional field, is an actor, singer, and television presenter in the Telugu entertainment industry. Also referred to as the "Young Tiger of Tollywood," he has been part of the industry for nearly 30 years and featured in over 30 movies till 2021. Jr. NTR began his career in 1991 as a child artist when he starred in 'Brahmarshi Vishwamitra', a film his grandfather, actor-turned-politician NT Rama Rao, had produced, directed, written, and starred in. Later, he acted in the 1996 film 'Ramayanam' which bagged the National Film Award for Best Children's Film. Jr. NTR would have made his adult debut with the movie 'Student No. 1', but the film's production took too long. Hence, he made his debut as a lead actor with the 2001 film 'Ninnu Choodalani'. Over the years, he appeared in many movies and got his breakthrough with the 2007 film 'Yamadonga'. The period between 2011 and 2014 was the worst in his career. However, he once again gained popularity after the release of the 2015 hit 'Temper'. His 2016 movie 'Janata Garage' became the biggest opening for a Tollywood film that year. Jr. NTR is one of the highest-paid Telugu actors.
