The makers of Telugu period drama Gauthamiputra Satakarni, which features superstar Nandamuri Balakrishna, will employ as many as 1000 soldiers and 300 horses to shoot crucial battle sequences in Georgia from Monday.
“We will be shooting these scenes at Mt. Kazbek in Georgia, and this portion will feature over 1000 soldiers, 300 horses and 20 chariots. These scenes will be blended with computer graphics to enhance the overall effect,” said film’s director Krish.
Balakrishna plays a Satavahana ruler in the film, which also stars Shriya Saran, Hema Malini and Kabir Bedi. “It’s the battle of Satavahanas versus Greeks. The film features three such battle sequences,” he said.
Produced by Y Rajeev Reddy, the film is slated to hit the screens around January next year.
