The 99th Telugu movie of actor Nandamuri Balakrishna's has been titled "Dictator". The movie, which also stars Nayanthara in the lead, is expected to go on the floors soon and the reports are that the makers are planning to release the movie in late October for the festive season of Dussehra.

"The plan is to release it during Dussehra. Nayantara has been paired with Balakrishna, while Sriwass will helm the project. The film will be shot in Hyderabad, Delhi and Europe on a lavish budget of about Rs.40 crore," a close source to the film's unit told IANS.

This is Nayantara's third movie with Balakrishna. They earlier worked together for movies like "Simhaa" and "Sri Rama Rajyam". Both the movies proved to be lucky for the actors as they were honoured with prestigious awards of the Telugu industry.

This is the first time that the duo is doing a movie for Balakrishna and both the script writers shared their excitement through their Twitter accounts.

"For the first time me & @Gopimohan are writing a story for the Legend Balayya !! Sree Vasu is capable to do 100% justice to our script!!" tweeted Kona Venkat

"We r working with NBK for the 1st time. Designed a powerful character with good content," tweeted Gopimohan

The music of the movie will be composed by SS Thaman and the upcoming film will be produced by Eros International.
