Tamil director KS Ravikumar is set for an exciting Sankranthi this year as he is the director of popular star Nandamuri Balakrishna's 150th movie, which is to release around that time. Nandamuri Balakrishna's next flick - tentatively named Ruler - will soon go to the floors. The first shooting schedule is reportedly in Bihar and the shooting will begin on July 15. The movie had a formal launch event on June 13 and the crew will be shortly leaving for the first schedule, which will cover some intense fight sequences.


Balayya will be seen in two avatars in the movie - a duty-bound police officer, who turns into a heartless gangster after his belief in the system is shattered. Kajal Aggarwal is the female lead. She was also the female lead for Chiranjeevi's 150th movie Khaidi no. 150. KS Ravikumar has four movies to his name in Tollywood - three of them hits starring the industry's topmost - Chiranjeevi, Nagarjuna, and Balakrishna. Balayya and Ravikumar had previously worked together in the movie Jai Simha, which released in 2018 and made a 20-crore profit margin. The production house that made Jai Simha - CK Entertainment - will be bankrolling this project, too. C Kalyan Reddy will be producing the movie, which is expected to hit the screens by Sankranti.
