The unit of Nandamuri Balakrishna's 100th film,
GautamiputraSatakarni will start filming for an
epic battle sequence in their latest schedule in Georgia from
"We will be shooting these scenes at Mt. Kazbek in Georgia, and
this portion will feature over 1000 soldiers, 300 horses and 20
chariots. These scenes will be blended with computer graphics to
enhance the overall effect", film's director Krish revealed.
Ever since Rajamouli fashioned huge battles in Telugu films with
Magadheera and upped its quotient in Baahubali,
the grandeur bug has seriously caught up with Telugu film makers
and nobody seems to be ready to compromise in getting the best
output. This in fact a good sign.
Balakrishna plays a Satavahana ruler in the film, which also
stars Shriya Saran, Hema Malini and Kabir Bedi. "It's the battle of
Satavahanas versus Greeks. The film features three such battle
sequences," the director further said.
Produced by Y. Rajeev Reddy, the film is slated to hit the
screens around January next year.
