Hits, flops, awards, rewards, fan love, trolling. No. Nothing matters when it comes to Nata Simha Nandamuri Balakrishna. He doesn’t care anyway. As he revealed many times, he does what he wants to do and and enjoy the process. Success is incidental.
He has already been in the industry for more than 4 and a half decades. Ever since he appeared as the bespectacled and cute teenager in Tatamma Kala directed by the legendary N. T. Rama Rao, Balakrishna has been a versatile actor. He’s the only one of the 1980s class of superstars to have done all sorts of roles in folklore, mythological, and all the other regular commercial genres.
We have already went through his entire filmography and found out that he acted in 18 different genres. With more than 100 films and such a varied filmography he even might have displayed Navarasas in his career many times. We will try to explore that later. What more such an evergreen star hero need to do now? Does he have dream roles still? He played almost all roles he wanted to play.
Today, on the occasion of his 60th birthday, Balayya Babu revealed a few interesting things about his career, and likes and dislikes. In the same interview he said that he wants to portray Genghis Khan (Chenghiz Khan). Also, he said he would like to explore the life of Gona Ganna Reddy on the big screen.
It is to be noted that superstar Krishna played a role that has the echoes of Gona Ganna Reddy in his iconic 1980s film Simhasanam. We, the current generation audience, know that Allu Arjun played Gona Ganna Reddy in Rudhramadevi to much appreciation. But Balayya playing the role is a very exciting prospect for the movie buffs.
And then there is Narthanasala. He tried to make it with the late Soundarya to play Draupadi in 2004 but the film got shelved after the death of the beloved actress. But Balayya revealed that he would make the film and direct it. It’s his biggest dream. We already know that Singeetam Srinivasa Rao is ready to make Aditya 999 - the sequel for Aditya 369. Balakrishna said that he would do this film at any cost.
Here we have listed all the four of his dream roles and 2 dream films. Check them out in the album.
