While he is the ‘Legend’ of Telugu Cinema, the other is the ‘Young Tiger.’ And when they clash at the box office, we can guarantee fireworks! We are talking about none other than the Nandamuri family titans – Balakrishna and Jr. NTR.
Balakrishna is currently working for his 101st film with Puri Jagannadh that is all set to release on Dasara as per the official reports from the film crew. Jr. NTR, on the other hand is filming for Jai Lava Kusa with director Bobby. The movie was supposed to go on to the floors much before and release on August 11th but due to some issues the productions started late and is now unlikely to release by the given date. Under the circumstances is looks likely enough that the producers of Jai Lava Kusa, might select a date around Dasara as well, for the film’s release, being a high revenue time. So it seems like we are all in for a treat to see the two Nandamuris coming to theaters at the same time!
Last instance the two came together head to head at the box office was when Nannaku Prematho hit the theaters at the same time as Dictator. While the former did well with the audience, the latter didn’t reach the expectations. But after the recent success of Janatha Garage and Gautamuputra Satakarni, fans from both the sides are eagerly waiting to see their favorite actors onscreen again. Dasara this year will surely test the loyalties of fans towards Balakrishna or Jr. NTR. Or would they make it a double bubble and go for back to back shows? Let’s wait and watch!
