Nandamuri Balakrishna has teamed up with director Boyapati Srinu for a new untitled project. Tentatively called #BB3, this is the third film in the combination of the actor and the director. If the latest grapevine is anything to go by, the makers are planning to rope in Amala Paul as the female lead of this film.
According to the sources, the makers are currently holding talks with Amala. An official announcement will get made once she signs the dotted lines. If she signs the project, this will be the first project in the combination of Amala and Balayya. BB3 recently got done with the first schedule of its shoot. The second schedule will begin once the ongoing pandemic gets over. If Amala signs the film in the meantime, she may also take part in the shoot from the next schedule. Miriyala Ravinder Reddy is bankrolling the project under Dwaraka Creations. Thaman is composing the music of it. Earlier, both Balayya and Boyapati teamed up for the films Legend and Simha. They are eyeing to score a hat-trick with this new project.
Amala made her Telugu debut with the 2011 film Bejawada. Later, she acted in movies like Naayak and Iddarammayilatho. She will be next seen in the Telugu remake of Netflix's original Lust Stories. Amala played a key role in the segment directed by Nandini Reddy. Amala is also making her Bollywood debut by acting in a web series made by Mahesh Bhatt.
