Megastar Chiranjeevi took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to pay tribute to the legendary Telugu superstar and former Chief Minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh, NT Rama Rao (NTR), on his 101st birth anniversary.

Chiranjeevi wrote, “The fame of some is immortal. He is an eternal example for future generations. Remembering Nandamuri Tarak Rama Rao today. I think the Bharat Ratna award is a fitting tribute to his services in public life. I hope that the central government will heed this long-standing wish of the Telugu people.”

NT Rama Rao, widely revered across the Telugu-speaking states, served as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh for seven years across three terms. His career began in the film industry, where he achieved immense popularity before transitioning to politics. NTR's impact was such that he joined the ranks of other actor-turned-politicians like MG Ramachandran, J Jayalalithaa, and Karunanidhi from Tamil Nadu.

This year, the Indian government honoured Chiranjeevi with the Padma Vibhushan, the second-highest civilian award in the country, highlighting his significant contributions to Indian cinema and public service.

Earlier today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also remembered NTR on his 101st birth anniversary. Taking to X, PM Modi hailed him as a "remarkable icon" of the Telugu film industry and a "visionary leader." The Prime Minister added, “Remembering the legendary NTR on his birth anniversary. He was a remarkable icon of Telugu cinema and a visionary leader. His contributions to film and politics continue to inspire generations. From his unforgettable roles on screen to his transformative leadership, he is fondly remembered. We will keep working to fulfill his vision for our society.”

NTR, the 10th Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, left an indelible mark on both cinema and politics. He is also the grandfather of contemporary Telugu superstar Jr NTR.
