Natasimha Nandamuri Balakrishna is one of the most powerful heroes in South Indian film industry. This star is all set to direct the film “Nartanasala”. Recently he revealed that he aspired to rope Late actress Soundarya into the role of female lead of this film. But due to her sudden demise, he postponed the venture.
Seeing Nitya Menon in the audio launch function of “Okkadine”, Balakrishna expressed his word at heart saying, “Nitya Menon is a maven heroine. Her body language memorizes old actresses Savitri, Madhu Bala, Nargis and Soundarya. She has the grace in her. Spectators of Andhra Pradesh should feel proud of this Nandi Award winner. Her presence reduced the drought for talented heroines in Tollywood. She looks a bit similar to Soundarya. I felt like roping her into my directional venture ‘Nartanasala’. I would have given her the role of Draupadhi if she is slightly taller than her present height.” Nitya Menon might be quite happy with the comments of Balayya. Stay tuned for more updates.
