Of late, actor Nandamuri Balakrishna is passing through a tough time and his recent releases like Adhinayakudu, Uu Kodathara Ulikki Padathara and Srimannarayana have failed to do expected amount of collection at the Box Office. Hence, the Telugu actor is leaving no stone to make his next outing Legend a Blockbuster. He is said to have shed some pounds for this much-awaited movie.
Three years after the huge success of Simha, Balakrishna has once again teamed up with director Boyapati Srinu for the movie Legend, which is said to be landmark film in his career. The actor has a never-played-before role in the film and he is said to be regularly hitting the gym and following strict dieting to fit into his character. He has reportedly shed 8 kg weight for achieving fresh and slim look.
Sources from the production team say that Balakrishna will be seen in two different looks in the movie Legend, which is touted to be a mass action entertainer. Radhika Apte and Sonal Chauhan are playing the female leads, while actress Nadhiya appears in a crucial role in the film. Jagapathi Babu is doing a negative role in the movie, which will have the music of Devi Sri Prasad, who is scoring music for the first time for Balayya's film.
