Like Father Like Son !

Here is good news for all Balakrishna fans. He will soon be seen in a dual role in a mythological flick Ranga Panduranga.

The film, where Balakrishna is playing both Lord Sree Krishna and his devotee Pundareeka, is being directed by K Raghavendra Rao.

"The story is based on noted devotee Pundareeka," says writer Bharavi. Telugu poet Tenali Ramakrishna had penned Pundareeka's inspiring story in Panduranga Mahatmyam on which a film was made in the past, featuring NTR Sr.

The film that was titled Panduranga Mahatmyam is still remembered for being one of NTR's most memorable performances-Telugu Cinemass.

According to Bharavi, only Balakrishna can do justice to this role and please the audiences like what his father did in the past.
