Nandamuri Balakrishna will be teaming up with VV Vinayak for a new project. Senior Producer C Kalyan who recently produced Balakrishna’s Jai Simha will be bankrolling this project. This is the third film in their combination after Parama Veera Chakra and Jai Simha. The movie was supposed to have its launch in May but that did not happen. We are told that the director has got a proposal of remaking Kannada Superhit film, Mufti for this project. But Balayya did not like it and rejected it outright. He asked Vinayak to come up with a straight story and the film will now go on floors only after the release of NTR. Vinayak is on it right now.
Balayya and Vinayak previously worked together for Chenna Keshava Reddy more than 15 years ago. This is a crucial project for Vinayak and he should deliver a hit at any cost or else his market will be eroded. His recent film, Intelligent with Sai Dharam Tej is a huge disaster. VV Vinayak has delivered three flops in his last four films. Only Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Khaidi No 150 success is an exception. The credit for Khaidi No 150 success goes to Chiranjeevi for obvious reasons.
