Balakrishna, who has earlier played Lord Ram in Sri Rama Rajyam, is now all set to reprise the role a warrior king in his 100th film. According to sources, the period film is set between 1300 and 1700 BC. Yellamanchali Saibaba, who earlier produced his mythological film Sri Rama Rajyam, is said to produce this untitled movie with Rs 30 crore.
Sources claim that the movie revolves around a king, who was a fearless warrior, great humanist and administrator, but his work went unnoticed. The makers of the movie want to give him his due on celluloid. Meanwhile, sources say that it is not a story of Sri Krishna Devaraya, but it is all about another king of the time hailing from a popular dynasty.
The onscreen chemistry between Balakrishna and Nayantara has clicked well at the Box office. Their two films like Simha and Sri Rama Rajyam have done wonders at the collection centres. So, now sources say that Nayan is the first option for Balakrishna's 100th movie, which is said to be directed by K Raghavendra Rao.
