Rakul Preet says playing the role of late veteran actor Sridevi in the upcoming NTR biopic is an achievement for her. “I am truly honoured and excited to play role of Srideviji in NTR biopic. When I was approached for that role, I asked the makers if they really though I could pull it off. She was the first Indian female superstar; she was such a fine and legendary actress. I was really worried if I would be able to do justice to her, but there is sense achievement as well as the makers thought that I can play her role. I will give my best for the film.” The biopic is based on the life of yesteryear superstar NT Rama Rao. Vidya Balan plays NTR’s wife Basavatarakam in the film, which will also star Bengali actor Jisshu as filmmaker and Dadasaheb Phalke awardee, LV Prasad.
