May 28th marks the birth anniversary of legendary actor and politician Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao (NTR). Social media is filled with tributes for the legendary actor. Fans have been remembering his incredible contribution to Indian cinema and to the Telugu people. Megastar Chiranjeevi also remembered Senior NTR on the latter’s 98th birth anniversary with a throwback photo. Chiranjeevi also penned a long note demanding Bharat Ratna for the late actor. The Sye Raa actor took to social media and shared a note with the hashtag #BharatRatnaforNTR. 

His note in Telugu loosely translates to, "It is a matter of pride for all Telugus to give the Bharat Ratna to our Telugu Tejam, the proud leader of the country, Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, just as the famous singer Navayuga Vaithalikulu gave the Bharat Ratna posthumously to Bhupen Hazarika. If this honor is bestowed on the NTR people on the eve of their 100th birthday, it is an honor bestowed on the Telugu people. Commemorating them on the occasion of the 98th birthday of that great man." 

For the unversed, NTR and Chiranjeevi have shared screen space in Telugu film Tirugu Leni Manishi. The film released in 1981.
