Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt will reportedly be making his debut in Telugu cinema with Balakrishna's new film, which is referred to as NBK 106. The actor has been approached to play the main villain in the action thriller, which is expected to go on floors in December.
The film will be directed by Boyapati Sreenu, who is joining hands with Balakrishna for the third time.
"Just like Balakrishna's previous films with Boyapati, the new film will have a powerful villain. Sanjay Dutt is pleased with the character arc of the antagonist and has responded positively," says a source close to the unit.
Interestingly, Sanjay Dutt is also making his debut in Kannada soon in a negative role in the action drama, KGF: Chapter 2. He will be seen as Adheera and has recently begun shooting for his part in Hyderabad.
Produced by Miryala Ravinder Reddy, NBK 106 will have two female leads and the makers have already initiated talks with a couple of renowned female actors. The team is planning to release the film in May 2020.
Meanwhile, Balakrishna is busy wrapping up his next release, Ruler, where he plays a cop based in Uttar Pradesh.
