Senior heroes Nagarjuna and Balakrishna have been carrying the legacy of their surnames on screen since their debut days, the trend inherited from their legendary fathers. While Nagarjuna was called as “Yuvasamrat” Akkineni Nagarjuna, Balakrishna is being called as “Yuvaratna” Nandamuri Balakrishna.
Of late, there seems to be an exception to Balakrishna’s title and as per the grapevine his name would appear as Basavatarakaputra Balakrishna instead of the usual “Yuvaratna” Nandamuri Balakrishna.
We are talking about the magnum opus Gautamiputra Satakarni and for the first time there is a chance that without surname his name might come in the title card. Gautamiputra Satakarni is Balakrishna’s 100th movie directed by Krish. The movie is currently shooting in Morocco and is slated for the grand release worldwide in January 2017.
