Popular Tollywood star Nandamuri Balakrishna has turned a singer by crooning a number for his upcoming untitled film. Referred to as NBK 101 for now, this film is being directed by Puri Jagannath.
Anup Rubens, the music composer of the film, came up with a peppy tune for the song and decided that only Balayya could do complete justice to it by rendering the song. The song recording happened recently and sources close to the NBK 101 team say that the actor astonished the entire film crew at the recording studio with his rendition.
Directed by Puri Jagannath, the film has Shriya Saran pairing up with the star. Incidentally, this is the first time the director is wielding the megaphone for a Balayya starrer, which has raised the expectation levels. Reports have it that the filmâ€™s shooting is progressing at a brisk pace with the director canning a massive fight sequence featuring the lead star. Soon after completing the stunt sequence, the director had posted on Twitter: â€śCompleted my first schedule of NBK 101 in a massive set action sequence. It's going to be a feast for all Nandamuri Balakrishna fans.â€ť
Balakrishna made his acting debut with the 1974 film Tatamma Kala, which was directed by his father and legendary actor NT Rama Rao. Since then he has acted in 100 films with his 100th film Gautami Putra Satakarni releasing earlier this year to good reviews. Puri Jagannadhâ€™s debut was with Badri in 2000 and he has had several hits in his long career. His last outing was Rouge, a bilingual in Kannada and Telugu, which did lukewarm business at the box office.
The shooting of NBK 101 will go on for the next couple of months and its release date has not been finalised yet.
