Nandamuri Balakrishna is all set to play a mafia don in his next film, the 99th film in the actor's career. The story sittings of the movie is complete and the script preparation is at an advanced stage. The film will be directed by Srivas who recently delivered a blockbuster with Gopichand's Loukyam. The same team that worked for Loukyam will be working for this project too.
Kona Venkat and Gopimohan will be providing the dialogues while Sridhar Seepanna will be providing screenplay. Producer Sivalanka Krishna Prasad who earlier produced Mithrudu with Balakrishna will be making a comeback with his project. With the failure of Mithrudu, Balayya offered to do a film with less remuneration to the producer then. Mani Sharma will most probably score music for this film.

The actor also being MLA of Hindupur has to balance his time between films and politics. The untitled project in which the actor will be seen as a CBI officer, is being planned for January or February 2015 release.
