Wait! What? Yes, you heard it right. The Tollywood star Balakrishna was spotted on Sarkar 3 sets, sharing a frame with Bollywood biggie Amitabh Bachchan.
The third part of the Sarkar franchise is currently being shot under Ram Gopal Varma’s (RGV) direction and the two actors were seen shaking hands and later had a long discussion on the shooting sets. While Bachchan, after his box office hit Pink, is busy with shooting of Sarkar 3, the Telugu star, who has never worked with Ram Gopal Varma before, is gearing up for his 100th film Gautamiputra Satakarni.
RGV posted pictures of the duo with ‘Balayya’ keenly observing the shots and scenes of the Sarkar. “The legend is checking how Sarkar is performing,” the director shared. The actor was also seen giving some quick directions to RGV.
Meanwhile, the rumours are rife in both the ‘woods’ that Balakrishna flew to Mumbai after a request from RGV. And reports suggest that Balakrishna asked Bachchan to play a role in his next Telugu title Raithu, though nothing is confirmed. However, the sudden visit triggers curiosity and speculations about Balakrishna probably playing a cameo in Sarkar 3.
Sarkar 3, a gritty political thriller set in the world of Maharashtra politics and crime, also features other popular actors including Jackie Shroff, Manoj Bajpayee and Yami Gautam. Ram Gopal Varma has written the script and is directing and producing the film. Meanwhile, NBK’s Gautamiputra Satakarni is slated for a Sankranti release next year.
