The unit of Nandamuri Balakrishna's 100th film, Gautamiputra Satakarni will start filming for an epic battle sequence in their latest schedule in Georgia from Monday.
"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.
