Imagine a director of depth and history driven research like Krish joining hands with the legendary Nandamuri Balakrishna. The outcome of such a combination is nothing short of awe. And it’s happening this time for real.

Superstar actor and Hindupur MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna aka NBK has announced the launch of his 100th movie, ‘Gautamiputra Satakarni’ at Amaravati. The story is about the most powerful ruler of Satavahana dynasty, the once seat of power in the period of Satavahana regime. The Andhra King Satakarni has not received his due share of fame in the history books. That is precisely what director Krish should be able to work with finesse for the screen.

It is said that during the rule of Satavahana empire, the kingdom spanned a stretch till Maharashtra in the west and till Kanchi in the south. This period also saw the great rise of Amaravati School of Art.

Predictably, the period film directed by Krish will have NBK playing the central protagonist Gautamiputra. This would also be a long time after Balakrishna was seen in a mythology driven film.

Balakrishna stated that it was a mere coincidence when he will be playing this role at the same time when Amaravati has been declared as AP’s capital, one more time.

“There are three epoch moments in the history of the Andhra state. The Salivahana era, the freedom struggle and thirdly, the entry of NTR into politics. I am lucky to do his character at a defining moment in our history- the building of a world class Capital,” NBK said.

NBK is confident that the movie would catapult the glory of Satavahana dynasty one more time and will create a sense of pride among the Telugu citizens about their rich culture and history. He also reminded his fans about the fact that late NTR had always dreamed of doing the role of Gautamiputra Satakarni, but could not do so because of his old age.

It remains to be seen as to how director Krish fulfills such a great responsibility for the star and his million followers.
