Balakrishna to make a guest appearance in Shivarajkumar’s Bhairathi Ranagal?
Shivarajkumar had made his debut in Telugu cinema with a song for Balakrishna’s 100th film, Gautamiputra Satakarni
Actor Shivarajkumar is gearing up for his 125th movie, titled Bhairathi Ranagal, which will be directed by Narthan of Mufti fame. The Hattrick hero’s landmark film has created buzz recently as there have been talks of a guest appearance by Telugu superstar Nandamuri Balakrishna aka Balayya.
The film’s title is based on the character, Bhairathi Ranagal, played by Shivanna in Mufti (which also featured Sriimurali in the lead). Bhairathi Ranagal will be a prequel that will focus on the rise of the don before he enters Ranapura.
Balakrishna is currently in the news for his biopic on NT Rama Rao. The film has been made in two parts, and Kathanayakudu, the first part was released today.
About his role in the Shivarajkumar-starrer, our source tells us, “The team has already sketched a character for the senior actor and we have approached him. It is just a matter of getting the green signal from him.”
It is notable that Shivarajkumar had made his debut in Telugu cinema with a song for Balakrishna’s 100th film, Gautamiputra Satakarni. Since Bhairathi Ranagal will be Shivarajkumar’s 125th film and the first film to be made under his home banner, Sri Muthu Productions, the team feels Balakrishna’s appearance will be an ideal choice.
Narthan has almost completed his scripting work, and will start with the pre-production from April. If all goes as per plan, shooting for Bhairathi Ranagal will start from October.
Meanwhile, Shivarajkumar has Kavacha lined up for release and has completed the shoot for Rustum. He is currently juggling between shooting for Drona, and Anand, a film directed by P Vasu. The actor also has SRK in his kitty.
