Yuva Ratna Balakrishna kept off from film shooting for the past some time in view of his daughter Brahmani's marriage with Nara Lokesh, son of N. Chandrababu Naidu, former Chief Minister and Telugu Desam president, who is also his brother-in-law.
With the marriage festivities coming to an end, Balakrishna is again going to become busy with the shooting of 'Okka Magaadu'. The next schedule has been planned from September 10. Directed by YVS Choudary, the film has raised lots of expectations and it is reliably learnt that the film might hit the screen by Sankranti 2008. Almost all the songs have been already choreographed and a major part of the talkie remained to be shot.
Simran, Anushka and Nisha Kothari are playing the heroines and it is reliably learnt that Balakrishna is playing dual roles in the flick. The fans of Balakrishna are eagerly awaiting the release of the movie in the wake of no notable hits to Balakrishna's credit in the recent past. They are believing that the film would keep him again on a success track. One has to wait and watch how far the film would fare at the box office.
