It's the 25th death anniversary of NT Rama Rao today. Paying homage to the legendary actor, Nandamuri Balakrishna on Monday said that his name will shine as long as Teluguness is there.
He praised his father as the great man who raised the stature of the Telugus. "He is an encyclopedia for today's generation. He is the only actor who essayed the roles of Sri Rama and Sri Krishna. He entered the field of politics with the aim of doing service and came to power within nine months of debuting in politics," Balayya added.
The Hindupur MLA also spoke of other contributions made by NTR.
