Ace director Krish Jagarlamudi will be hunting for virgin locales in picturesque Georgia for his upcoming period drama with reigning star Pawan Kalyan. "Krish will be touring the Peach State for four to five days to finalise the locations for his big budget flick.
He wants to give a fresh backdrop for his movie which is a period drama," says a source, close to the unit who claims that the director is fascinated with former Soviet republic.
"He shot some portions of his historical film 'Gautamiputra Satakarni' with Balakrishna in that country and has become familiar with the region. He wants to shoot some key portions of his next movie too," he adds.
Producer A M Rathnam, who made lavish movies like 'Indian' and 'Boys,' is leaving no stone unturned to deliver a blockbuster with 'Bangaram' star.
"Rathnam is known for big budget movies and doesn't mind spending a bomb if the script demands it and has given Krish a free hand," the source points out.
Actually, Pawan plays a heroic outlaw inspired by real-life person- Pandugala Sayanna, who hailed from Mahabubagar region, Telangana. He was a very notorious thief belonging to the period of 1870's.
Pandugala Sayanna used to share the robbed money, gold and other valuables with his villagers. He was more like a Robin hood kind of thief.
At one stage, Sayanna becomes a threat to local zamindar's and landlords. "Krish has the rights of Pandugala Sayanna's biography written by Bekkam Janardhan." says the source. Pragya Jaiswal set to play the female lead along with another B-town hottie.
