They paired up for Simha and Sri Ramarajyam. While Balakrishna played Lord Rama, Nayanatara played Sita in Sri Ramarajyam. The film got critical acclaim and success.
Nayanatara as Sita was much appreciated both by the audience and the critics.
But Balakrishna does not appear to be keen on repeating the magic.
Despite the producer and director of his latest film insisting that they would make a good pair, Balakrishna is said to be adamant about not wanting Nayanatara. He is said to be bored working with Nayanatara.
As the film needs to two leading ladies, Sonal Chauhan has been finalized for one role. The hunt is on for the other leading lady.
