Jr. NTR - Birthday Special - Just Watch

Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao (born May 20, 1983) more popularly known as Jr. NTR or just NTR, is an Indian film actor. He is the grandson of the Late Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, who was a legendary actor and former chief minister or Andhra Pradesh. He is fondly called as Tarak by his family, friends and close associates.

NTR was born and brought up in Hyderabad; his parents are Harikrishna Nandamuri and Shalini. He went to Vidyaranya School in Hyderabad, and later to St Rakesh's Junior College. He has a sister and two brothers, Kalyan Ram and Janaki Ram. His uncle Balakrishna Nandamuri is also famous actor.

A reputed Kuchipudi artist, he started as Lord Rama, a role patented by “The Legend”, & took Telugu Cinema into avenues never ventured before with his record breaking Aadhi and Simhadri. His Rakhi drew admirable reviews from fan and critic alike, wonderstruck with the scintillating beauty of his performance. No wonder,he is considered "The Legend in the making". He is exceptional in dancing and delivering speedy long dialogues. Fans go crazy watching his dance.

Rao began his career as a child actor and dancer. He made his first film, Ninnu Choodalani, in 2001, but it failed to perform well at the box office. He went on to gain fame with Student No. 1 (also released in 2001), directed by S.S. Rajamouli, followed by Subbu and Aadi. In January 2003, Rao's film Naaga performed poorly, even though it was produced by one of India's finest producers, A.M. Ratnam. However, in July 2003 Simhadri became the highest grossing film of the year in Tollywood, and made Rao and director Rajamouli household names.

His first release of 2004, Andhrawala, did not do well at the box office,though the next film, Samba, did better, and was at the top of the box office for fifty days. In 2005 his two releases, Naa Alludu and Narasimhudu, both did either badly or averagely at the box office. In 2006, his film Ashok had a good opening, but did not appease his fans.{cn|February 2007}}

His most recent film is Rakhi, which has proved a success at the box office, and has gained Rao good reviews.The film was directed by Krishna Vamsi, and co-stars Ileana D'Cruz and Charmme Kaur.

Built upon a bedrock of respect for his family & commitment towards excellence, Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, is an embodiment of greatness. He is the finest actor of his generation and gives his illustrious seniors a run for their glory. 14 films, 24 years, actor, dancer, singer… he is a humanitarian non-pareil. A synonym of majesticity on screen and simplicity off it, he is the darling of the masses, benefactor to the needy, and a brother to all Telugu kinsfolk.

His latest film YamaDonga did Rs 24 crore buisiness, which is a rare feet(crossing 20crore mark buisiness) in telugu done twice by NTR.i
