Director Guna Sekhar, who is one of the very few directors in Tollywood to have the audacity to make high budget epics, has surprised everyone by announcing his next project ‘Hiranyakashipa.’
In fact, after making the biopic of ‘Rudramadevi’, Guna had earlier announced his plans of making a film on the last notable Kakatiya ruler, Prataparudrudu. However, he seems to have changed his mind after the not so encouraging performance of Rudramadevi. Guna has recently revealed that he has started the scripting of Hiranyakashipa.
It is heard that Guna is planning to rope in one among Rana Daggubati, Allu Arjun, and NTR to essay the titular role. He has three choices, but his first option is said to be NTR. If the Nandamuri hero agrees then pooling resources would become very easy for Guna.
However, going by how cautious NTR has become after the success of Janatha Garage, it would be a herculean task for Guna to convince NTR. Getting his dates would require another monumental effort.
