The makers of Nandamuri Balakrishna’s upcoming yet-untitled Telugu film yesterday confirmed that they had signed Sayyeshaa as the leading lady for this Boyapati Srinu directorial project.

The makers announced the news with a tweet welcoming Sayyeshaa on board. “Welcoming beautiful & talented actress Sayyeshaa on board for #BB3. Looking forward to seeing you on sets (sic),” read a tweet from Dwaraka Creations.

This is the third time Balakrishna and filmmaker Boyapati are joining hands after Simha (2010) and Legend (2014). But this is the first time Sayyeshaa will be teaming up with Balakrishna.

The actress is awaiting the release of her Tamil film Teddy and the Kannada action drama Yuvaratna.

According to recent reports, Sanjay Dutt has been signed on as the antagonist for the Balakrishna film. But an official announcement is yet to be made. If Dutt comes on board, this will be his second Telugu outing. He will soon begin shooting for KGF 2, in which he plays a character called Adheera.

Boyapati's project is said to feature Balakrishna in dual roles. Apparently, one of the characters is an aghora and the makers are going to keep his look under wraps. The team plans to shoot a major schedule in Varanasi soon.

SS Thaman has been roped in to compose the music for the film. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be announced.

Interestingly, Balakrishna was seen playing dual roles in his previous release, Ruler (2019). He played a politician and a cop.
