‘Gauthamiputhra Satakarni’ is not just the prestigious 100th film of Nandamuri Balakrishna but it is a special project to extempore the forgotten Telugu glory of Satavahana times. Who else can be the best chief guest for the launch of ‘Satakarni’ on 22nd of this month at Annapurna Studios other than Telangana Chief Minister KCR!
Both Nandamuri Balakrishna and director Krissh have today personally met KCR at his camp office inviting him to ‘Gauthamiputhra Satakarni' film launch. Balayya is a staunch follower of Telugu history and more than that he is a politician cum best actor to fit in for such historical characters.
KCR promised Balayya to grace the event and was reportedly so happy with selection of such meticulous script. ‘Satakarni’ will be produced by Sai Babu and Rajiv Reddy on First Frame Banner while Devi Sri Prasad is to compose the music. Hema Malini is roped to play the Gauthami, the mother character of Balakrishna.
