When compared to all the other heroes, Nandamuri senior hero Balakrishna is sure changing his style in each and every movie. His latest release Jai Simha did moderately well at the box office and now he is currently busy with his upcoming movie which is going to be the biopic of his father NTR. Teja was supposed to be the director but the prestigious project now went into the hands of acclaimed director Krish.

On the other hand, after nearly 16 years, Balayya is colloborating with V.V.Vinayak for a mass masala movie. In 2002, the duo worked together for Chenna Kesava Reddy movie and now are all set to repeat the same magic with same Rayalaseema background. Rumors are rife that Balakrishna will be playing the role of a faction leader in the movie. The talk is that the title of this film is going to be 'AK 47'. One might think that it means 'Automatic Kalashnikov 47'. But it isn't.

The actual acronym of the title is reportedly 'Andhra King 47'. Though the title is apt for a commercial mass and faction movie, it would have worked well a few years back. Because, after state bifurcation and the formation of Telangana state, keeping the title as 'Andhra King' but appeal only the audience of AP but not in Telangana. So, the title is now getting mixed response from the audience. Let's see if they change the title again or not.
