Srikanth to Lock Horns with Balakrishna:- Nandamuri Balakrishna tasted a series of debacles in the recent years. He waited for the right script and is working with Boyapati Srinu for the third time after two blockbusters Simha and Legend. The shoot of this untitled action entertainer is happening at a fast pace in Hyderabad and the movie will release next year in summer. Sayyeshaa is the leading lady and Balayya will be seen essaying two different roles in this action entertainer and Poorna is the other leading lady.
The hunt for the lead antagonist has been on from sometime. Boyapati's hunt stopped with Srikanth and the veteran actor is undergoing a makeover for the film. Sonu Sood is considered initially but he quoted Rs 3.5 crores for the film and the makers decided to go ahead with Srikanth. The actor will be seen in a never seen new look and Boyapati designed the look recently. Thaman is the music composer and Monarch is the title considered for the film which is made on a budget of Rs 60 crores. Miryala Ravindar Reddy is the producer of Monarch.
