For quite some time Nandamuri Balakrishna has kept us wondering about his movie plans. 

His last film was Srimanarayana. There have been various speculations regarding his next film and political career. 

Balakrishna plans not only to act but also direct films. Reliable sources informed us that Balakrishna will be directing a fantasy film. He has already roped in the lead heroine. Nayanthara will be the leading lady of this film.

Yalamanchali Saibabu who had earlier produced Sri Ramarajyam will be producing this film. Balakrishna is the leading hero of this untitled film. We hear that the film will go to the sets by the end of this month. This is not the first time that Balaiah is trying his hands in direction. 

Earlier he launched a film, with late actress Soundarya in the lead. The film was a remake of Narthanasala. The film never took off as the leading lady Soundarya died in an air crash. 

We have seen Balakrishna as a superb star. Now with this film we will know the prowess of Balakrishna the director.
