Jai Simha stars Nandamuri Balakrishna and Nayanthara in lead roles.

Actor Nandamuri Balakrishna’s next major release is Jai Simha, which has been helmed by Tamil director KS Ravi Kumar. The shoot of the project has been wrapped up with the completion of the latest schedule in Dubai, according to reliable sources from the film’s unit. The team canned two songs -- on the female leads Nayanthara and Natasha Doshi - in the Dubai schedule. Originally, rumoured to be titled Karna, the makers confirmed the title in October with the first look poster.

Tipped to be an out-and-out commercial entertainer set against the backdrop of Rayalaseema politics, Jai Simha has been produced by C Kalyan. The project happens to be Balakrishna’s 102nd film and it reunites him with Nayanthara for the third time after blockbusters such as Simhaa and Sri Rama Rajyam. While he was seen in a full-length mass-appealing avatar in his last outing Paisa Vasool, his role in this film has been kept a mystery.

This film marks Balakrishna’s first time collaboration with Ravi Kumar, who has been planning a film with the former for a long time. Apparently, Ravi Kumar had planned to remake some of his own Tamil hits with Balakrishna; however, things never fell in place.
