Spotted: Jr NTR and family return to Hyderabad after a vacation in Dubai | Telugu Movie News

Jr NTR, his wife Lakshmi Pranathi and elder son Abhay Ram were spotted at Hyderabad airport on Wednesday after a short, relaxing vacation in Dubai.

The actor took a break from shooting for RRR for a week and went abroad with his family. For his airport look, he opted for a maroon tee-shirt paired with blue denims and black shoes. His curly hair and bearded look made heads turn despite the cool round shades and a mask. He held his son’s hand as he walked by, who looked adorable in a swear-shirt and jeans. Lashmi opted for a simple white shirt paired with jeans and kept her hair tied back.

Jr NTR went to Dubai last week to spend some quality time with his family. While most stars opted for Maldives, Tarak opted for something different like Mahesh Babu. Before that, he was busy canning important scenes for SS Rajamouli’s RRR during night shoots. The team recently even shared how they were coping with cold nights with the help of heaters during these shoots.

RRR has been in the works for over a year, with the shooting halted during lockdown. Apart from Jr NTR, the film also stars Ram Charan in the lead role apart from Alia Bhatt, Olivia Morris, Ajay Devgn and Shriya Saran in key roles. The film will see him play a tribal man based on Komaram Bheem, a role for which Tarak worked hard and maintained his fitness. The team of RRR also did a special photo-shoot for Diwali with their lead actors and director which was all the rage.

Jr NTR’s last film Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava with Trivikram Srinivas was a hit and the actor has given his nod to the director again. All the promotional materials of RRR have been received well, even if the star’s teaser for the film received some criticism for showing his character as a Muslim briefly. Further details of when the film’s shooting will resume again are awaited.

Left a vacation to come and play for Sunrisers Hyderabad, glad I did, says Jason Holder

West Indies captain Jason Holder said he was waiting for an opportunity to return to the Indian Premier League (IPL) and he is glad that the call from Sunrisers Hyderabad came even though it came in the form of injury replacement after Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh who was ruled out of the tournament after only one game for the former champions.

Jason Holder flew in as a replacement and got his first opportunity at IPL 2020 on Thursday when Sunrisers took on Rajasthan Royals in a crunch encounter. Holder made an immediate impact by picking up 3 crucial wickets in their 8-wicket win.

Holder came into the playing XI following an injury to Kane Williamson. Holder’s all-round skills added the much-needed solidity to the Sunrisers’s side who lacked firepower in the pace bowling department as well as the middle-order. Holder was not needed to bat as Sunrisers gunned down a 155-run chase with 11 balls and 8 wickets to spare, thanks to a fine 140-run unbeaten stand between Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar.

However, Holder, as expected, did the damage with the ball, picking up the wickets of Sanju Samson, Steve Smith and Riyan Parag apart from running out Robin Uthappa, who was looking in good touch.

Holder said he had wanted to get back to the IPL for quite some time and he made a ‘tough’ decision as he had left a vacation mid-way to join the IPL. Notably, Holder last played in the IPL in 2016.

“Yeah, it’s pleasing. Obviously, it had been a while since I played in the IPL. I wanted to get back to IPl for a long time. It was really good to get an opportunity here even though it was through an injury. Nevertheless, I am grateful for the opportunity. Glad I came in, I was able to make an impact on the game,” Holder told Vijay Shankar during an interaction for IPL.

“I left vacation to come here and play, left the missus. It was hard enough making the decision to come over and play. I am glad I did and making use of the opportunity is a pleasing feeling.”

Holder was part of the West Indies squad that played a historic Test series in England, marking the resumption of international cricket following the enforced break due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Holder had spoken about the difficulties of being in a bio-bubble for months but when the SRH call came, the West Indies star was ready to lap up the opportunity.

Holder had not managed more than 2 wickets overall in the three previous stints in the IPL but the West Indies all-rounder picked up 3 wickets in his very first match for SRH in IPL 2020. Having won a crunch game against RR by a big margin, SRH will be confident as their play-offs hopes have been revived.
