It’s confirmed, namma Duniya Vijay is heading to Telugu cinema. The actor-director, who is still basking in the success of his directorial debut, Salaga, is currently working on a script for his next in Kannada, but according to sources in the know, his next acting assignment will be the tentatively titled #NBK107. When we reached out to Vijay, the actor did not deny the development, but told us that he’d speak about it only after the official announcement from the film team.

#NBK107 is Nandamuri Balakrishna’s 107th film, which has Shruti Haasan in the lead along with him. Her casting was announced only a few days ago by the production house, Mythri Movie Makers, so, Vijay’s should also happen soon. The film, we hear, is a mass entertainer set in Rayalseema, directed by Gopichand Mallineni of Krack fame. The story is, apparently, based on a series of real-life incidents, and will have Vijay as the antagonist in the tale. S Thaman is the composer for the film, which is expected to go on floors shortly.

Vijay’s inclusion on the cast of the as-yet-untitled film is interesting, considering that it comes on the heels of the release of his latest Kannada project, Salaga, which reaffirmed his status as a bankable star at the box office, and launched him firmly as a filmmaker to look forward to. Both Balakrishna and Vijay are known for being a part of mass entertainers, so, having them in a showdown, will be epic.
