Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao Jr. was born to Nandamuri Balakrishna Rama Rao – the son of the late and iconic Telugu film and political icon NT Rama Rao. He had entered the film industry with the heavyweight heritage of lineage and the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth that ensures that you are welcomed into the fold.
But that is as far as that can carry you because after that begins the domain of the spectators who will judge you for your work.
The happily married, father of two and star of Telugu cinema is soon to be the toast of the world if reports in Variety magazine (USA) are right about him being a favourite for an Oscar.
NTR jr is a great health and fitness inspiration due to the way he shaped up in a short time through exercise. There is a distant history of a liposuction procedure long ago when he was preparing for a film named Yamadonga.
After Jai Lava Kusa, NTR Jr prepared for the next film by shedding 18 kg weight in a period of 5 months.
He continued his fitness training under celebrity fitness trainer Lloyd Stevens as he prepared next for the Kumaran Bheem (Komuram Bheemudo) role in RRR – the mega-hit by SS Rajamouli.
Shredding and six-packs did not come easy:
It is said he happily did the marathon jog during the preparations for RRR as SS Rajamouli made him run a lot in the Bulgarian wild for the famous lion sequence.
His diet was basically high-protein as he needed no flab and only a ripped look.
His gym routine every day is three hours of cardio and weight training.
Personal Trainer Lloyd Stevens wrote on Instagram: “PROUD is the only word that comes to mind … not just as a coach but for the whole @rrrmovie TEAM @jrntr @ssrajamouli I’m beyond grateful to be involved in this project, THANK YOU”
In October 2020 posted on Instagram that his work with the RRR star had begun two years ago. Their association has been a long one.

Now, if that does not inspire you, wonder what else can. Go, find your gym clothes and running shoes while there is still time to turn things around.
