Why May 21 is special for senior NTR?

May 21 is a very special day in the life of Telugu cinema’s legendary actor Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao senior. While today marks 50 glorious years of his film Ramudu Bheemudu, which was released on the same day in 1964, there are also other reasons why this day is special for NTR.

It was on May 21 1942, he got married to his first wife. It was also on May 21 1947, NTR applied makeup for the first time in his career for a role in a film. Because May 21 holds such a special place in his heart, he decided to release Ramudu Bheemudu on the same day in 1964. It was also the first film which featured NTR in double roles and the film was so successful that it was remade in Tamil and Hindi as Nam Naadu and Ram Aur Shyam, respectively.

After all, actors are also highly sentimental about some things in their life. It’s nice to know even a legend like NTR was so particular about these trivial things.
