NTR as Mahatma Gandhi : When NTR became Gandhi – Nehru surprised the assembly, honored with a gold medal!

Jawaharlal Nehru is one of the great leaders who changed the face of India. He was one of the freedom fighters of the country. He is also the first Prime Minister of our country. NTR is the protagonist who has brought respect and recognition to the Telugu nation all over the world. He (NTR) is the leader who changed the political image of Andhra Pradesh. 

NTR was introduced to Nehru as Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao during his college days. Not only that… he impressed Nehru with his performance and was awarded a gold medal by him. If you want to know the complete details… you have to flash back once!

Guntur AC. In college…
When NTR became Gandhiji!  
At that time our country did not get independence. Those were the days when people of India were participating in the ‘Quit India’ movement without any age discrimination, following in the footsteps of Gandhiji against the white caste. Then AC in Guntur. A strange incident happened in the college. That is… 

All the governing bodies of the college are Europeans. The students there are our Indians. An atmosphere of conflict arose between the ruling class and the students. Jawahar Lal Nehru, a follower of Gandhiji, came to the college to bring about peaceful harmony between the two communities. On his arrival, a huge gathering was arranged. Nehru is giving a speech on the stage. 

When Nehru was giving an emotional speech, there were as many students in the assembly as sand. It was so quiet that you could hear a needle drop. Right at that moment… from the middle of the students, someone with the support of a shoulder scarf and a cane walks briskly towards the stage. Nehru’s gaze also fell. He was suddenly surprised. ‘Bapuji! How did you get here? Come up…’ and greeted them warmly. Even the students under the stage, including Nehru, thought that Gandhiji had come for a few minutes. Only the disturbance started. After a while, the principal of the college came and reminded him that he was not the real Gandhi.

”Sorry Nehruji! The person you welcomed is not the real Gandhi. A student studying BA in our college. The principal of Nehruki College explained that he had a passion for dressing up strangely. Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao was that student who also believed in Nehru as Gandhiji. Parakaya entering the role and acting has been in his blood since before entering the movies.

“I am announcing a gold medal to him (NTR) who came in the guise of Mahatma Gandhi and left me in awe” Nehru announced in the assembly… Delhi After leaving, he sent the gold medal. 

Perhaps Nehru didn’t expect then… The student who surprised him in Gandhi’s garb, the person who received the gold medal from him, will face his successor Indira Gandhi in Andhra Pradesh politics in the coming days, the brave leader NTR. Will be! Come into politics and become the Chief Minister!
