Noted writer M Ratnam is known for penning the dialogues for films such as Vikramarkudu, Yamadonga, Legend, Sarrainodu and so on. Having worked with top directors such as SS Rajamouli and Boyapati Srinu, Ratnam is now preparing a script with N Balakrishna in mind. Sources in the know say that the script is that of a political thriller set in the backdrop of Rayalaseema. What makes it interesting is that it is all about faction politics, which the writer feels may interest the star.

However, Balayya is currently busy with the NTR biopic and is yet to allot time for M Ratnam to hear out the story. The biopic, which is Balayya’s ambitious project, is all set to roll out soon. Initially, director Teja was in charge of wielding the megaphone but following creative differences with the lead star he was later replaced by director Krish.

Incidentally, Balayya will not only be playing his late father, actor and politician NT Rama Rao, in the biopic but will also be co-producing it along with Sai Korrapati and Vishnu Induri. The biopic is being bankrolled jointly by N Balakrishna, Sai Korraputi and Vishnu Induri.

Reports indicate that Balakrishna will be concentrating on the biopic for the next few months, with its release scheduled for Sankranthi next year. After this movie is wrapped up, he will be moving on to the VV Vinayak directorial. The director is busy preparing the script for this film right now.

With two back to back films on hands for Balayya, writer M Ratnam will have to wait for a few more months to get a nod from the star. It may be mentioned here that there are reports that the writer is keen on making his directorial debut with the Balayya starrer. To get clarity on this, we need to wait for some more time.
