The reports were afloat that Nani's next would be titled as Jai Balayya, when a picture of him leaked with a tattoo on his hand, which read Jai Balayya. It is a known thing that, the actor will be playing a die-hard fan of Balakrishna in the film.
However, the film was titled Krishnagaadi Veera Prema Gadha later, which is gearing up to hit screens this Friday. This gave a free hand to the gossipmongers to mislead the audiences, saying Nani has put aside Balakrishna. Even in the promotions of the film, there was no much hype on Balakrishna's element in the film, which further strengthened the tattle.
Apparently, Nani cleared the air by revealing the back story behind it. "The film is largely set in Hindupur village and we have shot entirely in the same place, for which Balayya garu is an MLA. In fact, if you go there you will find a fan of Balakrishna at least one in a home. So, I am also playing one among them and the scenes came out so natural."
"We have actually thought of approaching Balakrishna garu for a cameo as well. But, we felt the main story is being sidelined because of this and we went ahead with the title Krishnagaadi Veera Prema Gadha, which is more apt for the story. You will understand why we had to do this, once you watch the film", Nani added.
