Bollywood actor Janhvi Kapoor is set to make her debut in Telugu cinema with superstar Jr NTR's upcoming film, which has been tentatively titled NTR 30

"It is finally happening Can't wait to set sail with my favourite @jrntr," she wrote, while sharing the news with her followers on social media. 

The announcement was made to coincide with Janhvi's 26th birthday celebration. "She's the calm in the storm from the fierce world of #NTR30," read the post from the film's Twitter handle. 

NTR 30 was supposed to go on the floors in February. However, the project was delayed due to various reasons. Tarak was also mourning the death of his mourning the death of their cousin Nandamuri Taraka Ratna

Ratna passed away after suffering a fatal cardiac arrest. He was just 39. 

Tarak had postponed all his professional commitments to be with his family. The production is now expected to resume in the third week of March. The filmmakers are said to be building massive sets on the outskirts of Hyderabad for the shoot. The buzz is that this movie will also be heavy on VFX. 

NTR 30 is being mounted on a massive scale. The filmmaker released a dialogue promo in May last year. Tarak, in an intense voice, says, "Sometimes the valour doesn’t understand that it should not go out of its depths. And at times the fear should know that the time has come to stop it. I am coming.” The teaser revealed a battle-ready Tarak with his blood-soaked weapons standing at the centre of a storm. 


Written and directed by Koratala Siva, the film has some of the best technicians of Indian cinema. Composer Anirudh Ravichander is working on the film's score. 

NTR 30 marks Tarak's second collaboration with Kortala Siva. In the past, the actor-director duo delivered a blockbuster called Janatha Garage. Also starring Malayalam superstar Mohanlal in the lead, the film was a huge hit in 2016. 

Jr NTR's last film RRR became a global sensation when it was released in cinemas last year. The film has collected more than Rs 1200 crore from its worldwide theatrical release. And it is still running successfully in cinemas in many parts of the world. Last week, the film was re-released to boost its ongoing Oscar campaign. The film's blockbuster song 'Naatu Naatu' has been nominated for the Academy Awards. The winners will be announced on March 12. 

In the early hours of Monday, Tarak took off to join the RRR team in America . Once he returns to India, he will join the sets of NTR 30.
