A couple of days back, Nandamuri Balakrishna has released a new version of the classic song Shiva Shankari from the Jagadeka Veeruni Katha. Balakrishna lent his own voice for this version of the song. He released it on the eve of his birthday. Since the release, the song got mixed responses from the audiences. Some of them opined that it was good and some of them stated that it was not up to the mark. Balakrishna himself admitted that his singing was bad but he is happy that at least he attempted it.
On the occasion of his birthday, Balakrishna participated in a live Facebook chat last evening. Speaking in the chat, he said that he knows that he sang the song pretty badly but he is happy for attempting it. However, Balayya didn't respond to the trolls he received for the song. He revealed that he listens to his father NTR's songs and dialogues every day. Balayya also expressed his happiness for the response to his upcoming film's teaser. He stated that the film will reach the expectations of the audiences.
Directed by Boyapati Srinu, this film is tentatively called #BB3. The teaser received a thumping response from the viewers. This is the third film in the combination of Balakrishna and Boyapati, after Simha and Legend. The duo is planning to score a hat-trick with this movie. Miriyala Ravinder Reddy is bankrolling the film under the banner Dwaraka Creations. Thaman is composing the music of it.
