Nandamuri Balakrishna is yet to take a call on his next film. Balakrishna thought of doing Raithu with Krishna Vamsi, but that project is put on hold for the moment.
Khaidi No. 150 dealing with the same theme of the struggles of farmers seems to be the reason for putting Raithu on hold.
Balakrishna has decided to do movies with different themes post Gautamiputra Satakarni and that is the reason why he is taking time for his next film. He is yet to find a right script that is good enough to follow up GPSK.
Directors like Sriwass and Vinayak have reportedly approached NBK, but he is not in a mood to take up a masala potboiler at this point.
Mass masala movies have always been great fodder for Balakrishna and it will get extremely tough for him to find scripts if he stays away from doing commercial films.
Interestingly, new age directors are still not approaching the veteran star in spite of being aware of Balakrishna’s willingness to do content driven films.
