'Lion' was destined to happen with Balakrishna says director Satya Deva

Debutant director Satya Deva, who waited four years for his forthcoming Telugu film "Lion" to materialise, says the project was always destined to happen with actor-politician Nandamuri Balakrishna. He further added by saying- "What's heartening is that he didn't forget about this project even though he heard it long back. Though I wrote the script four years ago, over the years I made slight changes to it by keeping in mind his image, body language and even the response to his previous films".
