Notwithstanding the flop streak of crazy director Puri Jagannath, Balakrishna Nandamuri has given him the chance to direct his 101st film. However, Balayya has reportedly said no to another proposal of Puri before handing him the license to direct.
As per reports, Puri thought of producing #NBK101 under his own banner. When he requested the same, Balayya vehemently turned down the idea citing that he had already committed to do a film for V. Ananda Prasad of Bhaya Creations. Puri could do nothing but oblige as he was in no position to take chances with Balayya’s temper. The Nandamuri hero promised Puri to give him another chance after three years.
After completing Satakarni, Balayya was supposed to act in Krishna Vamsi’s ‘Rythu’ for Bhavya Creations. Even though he dropped the project, he didn’t forget the word given to the producer. That’s why Balayya is called producers’ hero.
