Senior NTR films' titles now turned into song

Chennai, Jan 29 (IANS) Old film titles of Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao Sr. (NTR) have inspired the making of a song in upcoming Telugu action-drama "Eduru leni Alexander". The makers are planning to compose a song solely with the titles of old NTR films.

"We are planning to shoot the song which will have its lyrics picked from the titles of senior NTR films from March onwards. This song will be dedicated to all NTR fans around the world. What makes it special is that his grandson (Tarak Ratna) will groove to the song," Panuganti Rajareddy, film's director, told IANS.

The movie, currently being shot in Hyderabad Deccan Park, stars Nandamuri Tarak Ratna and Komal Jha in the lead. Ravi Babu, Kota Srinivasa Rao and Vijay are essaying important roles in the film.

"We are nearing completion of the talkie part and will start working on the remaining two songs from Tuesday (Jan 29) onwards. If all goes well, then we may very likely release the film towards the end of February or early March," added the director.

The film is produced by Lakshmikant Reddy and has cinematography by Thota Ramana. Josyabhatla Sarma has been roped in to compose the music.
