"The plan is to release it during Dussehra. Nayantara has been paired with Balakrishna, while Sriwass will helm the project. The film will be shot in Hyderabad, Delhi and Europe on a lavish budget of about Rs.40 crore," a close source to the film's unit told IANS.
This is the third time Nayantara and Balakrishna have come together after "Simhaa" and "Sri Rama Rajyam".
Sriwass, who has two back-to-back hits such as "Lakshyam" and "Loukyam", will be eyeing for a hat trick.
The film will be produced by Eros International, and S.S. Thaman has been roped in to compose the tunes.
