On the occasion of Ugadi, the much-awaited title of Nandamuri Balakrishna's upcoming actioner with director Boyapati Sreenu is out, and keeping all the speculations aside, the film is titled 'Akhanda'. The movie marks the third collaboration of the hit combo of actor-director.
The title was announced with a 1-minute long teaser in which, Balakrishna is looking in the fierce avatar as Aghori and stealing the show with his powerful dialogue and roaring screen presence.
Produced by Miryala Ravinder Reddy under the banner Dwaraka Creations, the movie stars Pragya Jaiswal as the female lead while Srikanth Meka plays the antagonist. Earlier, Sayyeshaa Saigal was supposed to romance the senior hero in the film, but later, she was replaced by the Jabalpur bombshell Pragya Jaiswal due to unknown reasons.
While the shooting of the film is on the verge of completion, recently, the makers have shot high-octane action sequences involving Balakrishna and the principal cast at the Dandeli forest in Karnataka. Written by Boyapati Srinu, S Thaman has scored the music.
Akhanda film marks the third joint venture of Balayya and Boyapati after two blockbusters 'Simha' and 'Legend'. It is slated to release worldwide on May 28, 2021.
