September 29, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): The veteran director Bapu is well known in the Telugu film industry for his unique approach to film making. A source in the film industry recently revealed that currently Bapu is working on a film based on Ramayana. This is not the run-of-the-mill mythological story about the fight between Lord Rama and Ravana.The story will be based on Lava and Kusa, the two sons of Lord Ram.
Reports also suggested that Bapu has roped in Balakrishna to play the lead role in the upcoming flick. Mythological films are nothing new for Bapu and he has become an expert in making some of the best Mythology themed movies in Tollywood. Quite interestingly, years ago a movie about ‘Lava and Kusa’ was made years ago and that film had NT ramarao in the lead role.
The re-iteration of the old flick will have Balakrishna in the lead role and we hope that the actor lives up to the high benchmark set by NT Ramarao. The movie has been aptly names Sri Ramayana and it will be launched by September 30 this year. The musical maestro IIayaraj is going to score for the upcoming mythological extravaganza. Certain sources have suggested that two songs for the film have been recorded as well. we are not sure about who will portray the coveted role of Sita in the upcoming flick. We are pretty sure that Nayantara is a good candidate for the role because she has the earthy good looks that Sita was famous for.
