Dream come true

IT IS a dream come true for Balakrishna as he is remaking his father late NTR's golden classic "Narthanasala", which will be directed by him. The shooting for the modern version began in Hyderabad on March 1. It features Balakrishna in a dual role as Arjuna and Keechaka while Soundarya plays Draupadi along with Srihari, Sarath Babu, Uday Kiran and Asin. The art director is veteran Bhaskar Raju and Balakrishna does not want too much of graphics or special effects as he feels they might tamper with the storyline. Balakrishna also wants to stick to the original classical tunes and has roped in Madhavapaddi Suresh to compose music for nearly a dozen songs in the film.
