Balakrishna’s Interest in Vishwanadha’s Literary Works
Perhaps, Natasimham Nandamuri Balakrishna is the only hero who prefers to enact movies with various genres such as mythological, historical and folklore films. He has good command on ancient scriptures, slokas and history. When Balayya chants Sankrit slokas on stage, his fans listen to them with utmost devotion.
It is being said that Balakrishna is fond of the literary works of legendary Telugu writer late Vishwanadha Satyanarayana. Incidentally, director Krish, who helms ‘Gauthamiputra Satakarni’, is also much interested in Vishwanadha’s literary works.
As we know, Vishwanadha won prestigious Gnanapeeth award for his master piece ‘Veyi Padagalu’. If at all, Balayya and Krish team up again for ‘Veyi Padagalu’, it would be the wisest decision for Balakrishna. Let’s hope for the best. Meanwhile, ‘Satakarni’ is being filmed at a brisk pace right now. Shriya romances Balakrishna in the film. The movie’s release date has been zeroed to Sankranthi, 2017.
