Nandamuri Balakrishna is on top of his game with back-to-back hits in his kitty. Post the success of Akhanda, his new film Veera Simha Reddy was released with a bang, and the film has crossed the 100 crore mark at the box office. High on the success of this film, he signed a film with the star director Anil Ravipudi and has also started shooting for the same.
The film's second schedule was supposed to go on floors this month but that has not happened as Balakrishna is living mostly in Bangalore as his nephew Tarakaratna is in critical condition as he suffered a massive heart attack during his political road show in Kuppam, AP. Balakrishna has taken full responsibility for Tarakaratna and is busy with him in the hospital.
We have also come to know that the makers approached Balayya regarding an update and he has asked them not to call him until the end of February. Once when Tarakaratna feels better and is out of danger, Balayya has asked to fix a new schedule. That means that the film's release date of Dussehra this October will get postponed for sure.
Anil Ravipudi has given only hits in his career and this is the first time he has teamed up with Balakrishna and will showcase him as a 60-year-old man. Sreeleela will be seen as Balayya's daughter in this film which has music by Thaman. For now, Balakrishna is also done with his OTT show and does not want to be disturbed.
