Popular actor NTR Jr’s Telugu entertainer ‘Adhurs’ has been re-released in a spectacular 4K version over the weekend. Directed by W. Vinayak, the film originally hit theatres in 2010, and its re-release promises an upgraded cinematic experience for fans and new audiences alike.
NTR Jr’s team listed a number of reasons to “catch the man of masses NTR Jr” in ‘Adhurs’ – which translates as marvellous:
Dual Role: 'Adhurs' showcases NTR Jr in a dual role – Narasimha, an undercover agent working for the police department disguised as a gangster, and Chari, a Brahmin priest mentored by Bhattu, played by the legendary Brahmanandam.
Chemistry with Nayanthara: The film marked the first collaboration between NTR Jr and Nayanthara, creating an unforgettable on-screen chemistry. The magic of their pairing is still etched in the audience's memory, especially through the hit songs 'Chari' and 'Chandrakala.'
Re-released after 13 years: Despite its initial release in 2010, 'Adhurs' continues to captivate audiences with its timeless humour, memorable characters, and engaging storyline. The re-release offers a chance for both loyal fans and new viewers to experience the magic on the big screen.
While fans have welcomed the re-release of 'Adhurs', NTR Jr is busy with the shooting of 'Deevara' – a highly anticipated project featuring Saif Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor. Directed by Koratala Siva, the movie is slated for release in 2024. Each fresh update about the film has been contributing to the already high anticipation of seeing the star take on a thrilling new character. A high-budget spectacle, the film – slated for an April 2024 release – will be made in two parts owing to its powerful storyline and grandeur.
