Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who is keen on developing Hyderabad City with international standards, had approved the design of the proposed Telangana Kalabharathi to come up at the existing NTR stadium.

Rao, who wants to change the face of Hyderabad, proposed to construct several skyscrapers, skyways, convention centres and others across the city. The Telangana Kalabharathi is one among them and the foundation stone for the same would be laid shortly. ‘’As a tribute to the glorious history of Telangana state, a classical design of the proposed building to house the Telangana Kalabharathi was prepared by world famous architect Hafeez Contractor.
