Jr NTR - Rajeev KanakalaJr NTR has many good friends in the industry and Rajeev Kanakala is one of them. Their friendship dates back since 2000 and the duo have worked in a handful of films. However, despite their thick friendship Rajeev Kanakala is not visible in all the movies of Jr NTR.

The million-dollar question over Rajeev’s absence from Tarak’s majority of films has been a frequent question by the fans. They rue that when they are so thick friends then it would be good to see them on-screen too frequently as well.

However, Rajeev Kanakala has now revealed his conspicuous absence. “Tarak wants me to be in each of his films. In fact, at times there has been that he has referred my name to the director. But I tell him that he shouldn’t do that. Even the director should also have the same vision, and if he thinks I fit in the role they would cast me, and it shouldn’t be forceful,” he concludes.

Their recent films were Nannaku Prematho and Janatha Garage. On the work front, Tarak is busy with RRR. The team is busy with a promotional song shoot and the film is scheduled for October 13 release, but with heavy post-production, the release date may get postponed is the buzz.
