Balakrishna – Gopichand Malineni: Nandamuri Balakrishna has teamed up with director Gopichand Malineni for his next film. It is currently in the pre-production stage and will hit the floors soon. The makers are currently finalising the main cast of the movie. Already, it was announced that Shruti Haasan will play the female lead in it. Now, it is being reported that a prominent Kannada actor will play the role of an antagonist in the film.
According to the sources, Gopichand Malineni wants to rope in Kannada actor Duniya Vijay as the villain of this movie. Apparently, the talks are going on with the actor and an official announcement will be made once he signs the dotted lines.
Vijay shot to fame in the Kannada film industry with the movie Duniya. Eventually, it became the prefix of his name. Chanda, Junglee, and Jayamanna Maga are some of his other notable works. Generally, we see powerful villains in Balayya’s films. Even in his upcoming film Akhanda, actor Srikanth is playing a negative role. If everything falls in place, Duniya Vijay will become Balayya’s next enemy.
Gopichand has signed Tamil actors Samuthirakani and Varalakshmi Sarathkumar as antagonists for his last film. Now, he is choosing a Kannada actor for this movie. Tentatively called NBK 107, this film is being bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers. Thaman is composing the music of it.
