Gautamiputra Satakarni, the upcoming prestigious project of Nandamuri Balakrishna will mark an important film in the actor’s career. Apart from being NBK’s 100th film, Gautamiputra Satakarni is about the mighty Satavahana ruler who was known for his immense valor and incredible sense of administration. The historical drama that is set to be directed by Krishh will be shot in the same location where Hollywood hit Gladiator was filmed – at Morocco. The crew will start filming the first leg on location that will go on for the next three weeks.
The project has started filming in Morocco. It is said that dream girl and yesteryear actress Hema Malini has been finalized to play one of the most important roles in the film. Apart from her, veteran Bollywood actor Kabir Bedi will also be seen playing a super important character. In fact, the actor has just joined the sets at Morocco for filming his part. Another important aspect is that Balakrishna’s son, Nandamuri Mokshagna will be the assistant director for the film. This historic extravaganza is being produced by Rajeev Reddy and the music will be composed by Devi Sri Prasad.
The crew is still on a mission to finalize on the female lead for the film. There are some serious discussions ongoing as to who would play the main lead along with NBK. The film is being planned to be released worldwide on January 12th, 2017.
