Actor Nandamuri Balakrishna, who is busy with the shooting of "Lion", has reportedly planned to launch the career of his son, Mokshagna Teja, after the release of his 100th movie.
Mokshagna's acting debut has created a lot of curiosity among the Nandamuri fans, who are eagerly waiting to see him on big screen. The speculation about his debut started after his first public function with his father at the audio release of "Srimannarayana".
It was reported that Balakrishna would join politics in the 2014 assembly elections, bidding good bye to his acting career and that he wanted to launch his son's career in films before quitting acting. Later, the actor silenced all rumours, saying that his son had shown interest in acting and he would debut in Tollywood after completing his studies.
If we are to go by the latest reports, Mokshagna is now studying a management course in New York, USA. A source close to Balakrishna claims that the actor, who is currently working on 98th film - "Lion", has planned to introduce his son to the Telugu audience after the release of his 100th film.
"There is so much expectancy around Mokshagna's imminent Tollywood debut among the Nandamuri fans. With so much hype surrounding Balayya's 100th film, the actor felt that it would be ideal to have Mokshagna debut after his landmark film is out of the way," The Times of India quoted the source close to the actor as saying.
"Mokshagna expressed his desire to become an actor to his dad a while ago. But the actor wanted his son to complete education before foraying into cinema. NTR had made sure that Balayya entered filmdom only after completing his studies. And Balayya is following suit with his son," the source added.
Akkineni Nagarjuna's son Akhil is also making his acting debut through VV Vinayak's next directorial venture. Mokshagna would be the next superstar's kid to enter Tollywood. The source further says that besides focusing on his studies, Mokshagna also practises stunts in his spare time. He will undergo professional acting training before entering the film industry.
