When asked about a particular role he had in mind for Jr. NTR in the Guardians universe, James Gunn replied that he would have to figure that out, adding that it would take a little while to do so.
Indeed, Jr. NTR has expressed his desire to work in Hollywood movies in the past, and his recent performance in “RRR” has garnered attention from international filmmakers like James Gunn. It’s possible that we may see him in a lead role in a Hollywood movie in the future, perhaps even in the DCEU or MCU. However, it’s important to note that it can take time to secure roles in major Hollywood productions, and there are many factors that come into play.
Meanwhile, Jr. NTR is currently working on “NTR 30”, directed by Koratala Siva, which features Saif Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor in significant roles. He will also be collaborating with Hrithik Roshan for Yash Raj Films’ “War 2” and has a project with director Prashanth Neel in the pipeline.
