Popular Tollywood star and politician Nandamuri Balakrishna shares a good rapport with his Kannada counterparts Shivraj Kumar, Raghavendra Rajkumar and Puneeth Rajkumar. So, when he was in Bengaluru recently, Balayya decided to visit each of the three brothers individually to offer his condolences on the demise of their mother Parvathamma Rajkumar. Wife of late Kannada superstar Rajkumar and a popular producer, Parvathamma passed away on May 31 in a private hospital where she was undergoing treatment.
Reports from the Kannada film industry are that Balayya first visited Shivraj Kumar at his residence and then made his way to his brother Raghavendra Rajkumarâ€™s residence to offer his condolences. He then met Puneeth Rajkumar on the sets of a film before heading to Hyderabad, say sources.
During the meeting with Shivraj Kumar, both the stars recalled the days they were together when their respective fathers, Rajkumar and NT Rama Rao ruled the roost in the Kannada and Telugu film industry as stars. They also recalled the association of both their families which dates back to several years.
Reports say that Shivraj Kumar invited Balayya for the Mass Leader audio launch and the Tagaru teaser launch. The star is planning to have both these launches together and the Telugu star is expected to grace the occasion.
While Tagaru is directed by Duniya Soori and stars Shivraj Kumar in the lead role, Mass Leader is directed by Narasimha. The release date of Mass Leader has been fixed as August 28, 2017 and Tagaru is most likely to hit the silver screens sometime in November. Interestingly, both Tagaru and Mass Leader are touted to be action entertainers and with the filmsâ€™ release scheduled just a couple of months apart, Shivraj Kumarâ€™s fans are in for a visual treat.
