N Balakrishnaâ€™s upcoming film titled Ruler went on to the floors a few weeks ago and is progressing well. The first schedule was completed in Bihar and the second schedule will start in Bangkok next month. Sources in the know say that the second schedule will begin on August 7 and preparations are currently on for it.
Balayya will be playing dual roles in Ruler, which is being directed by KS Ravi Kumar, and we hear that while one will be that of a cop, the other will be that of a politician. Sonal Chauhan and Vedhika have been roped in to play the female leads in this flick. Reports are that the combo scenes between the lead stars â€“ Balayya, Sonal and Vedhika â€“ will be shot in Bangkok.
The story for this movie is penned by Paruchuri Murali and the rest of the technical crew will be Chirantan Bhatt for music and Ram Prasad for cinematography. Ruler is being produced by C Kalyan under his banner Happy Movies.
N Balakrishna and KS Ravi Kumar are coming together after the massive success of Jai Simha, which has upped the expectation levels for Ruler.
Balakrishnaâ€™s last release was the biopic on his late father, the legendary actor and politician, NT Rama Rao. It was released in two parts as â€“ NTR Kathanayakudu and NTR Mahanayakudu â€“ highlighting both his film and political career. The NTR biopic was helmed by J Krish and produced jointly N Balakrishna along with Vishnu Induri and Sai Korrapati. It had an impressive star cast with Vidya Balan, Mohan Babu, Sumanth, Keerthy Suresh, Rana Daggubati and others. MM Keeravani composed music for this venture with Gnana Shekar V.S cranking the camera and Arram Ramakrishna editing it.
After finishing Ruler, Balayya will be moving over to the Boyapati Srinivas directorial, for which the groundwork is currently underway.
