Actor Nandamuri Balakrishna, who is basking in on the success of his recent release "Dictator," has reportedly roped in ace director Krishna Vamsi for his 100th film.

A lot has been spoken and written about Balakrishna's 100th film. The speculation about its cast and crew started months before the release of his 99th movie, "Dictator." Nandamuri family fans are eagerly waiting to know about the director of the film. The names of several ace helmers were linked with this project.

The buzz in the industry is that Balakrishna has asked "Govindudu Andarivadele" fame Krishna Vamsi to write an interesting script for his 100th movie. The director is said to be busy with the scripting work.

"Balakrishna called Krishna Vamsi and asked him to come up with a good subject for his 100th film. So the director is busy preparing a script for him," Deccan Chronicle quoted a source as saying. "The actor has to decide on a director after going through the different subjects, he is not in a hurry to decide," the source added.

The reports about the director of Balakrishna's 100th film have doing the rounds in media for quite long time now. After the release of "Dictator," the actor had announced that this landmark film will be a sequel to his 1991 hit film "Aditya 369" and Singeetham Srinivasa Rao would direct the movie. It was reported that the science fantasy film was titled "Aditya 999." 

It was later rumoured that the name of Boyapati Srinu, who has earlier given big hits like "Simha" (2010) and "Legend" (2014) to Balakrishna, was also in the list of the top contenders. Director Krishna Vamsi is said to be the latest entrant in the list.

However, Balakrishna is currently supervising the arrangements for the Lepakshi celebrations to be held near Hindupur from Feb 27. This event is aimed to promote Telugu art, culture and traditions. The actor will reportedly be seen as Vijayanagar ruler Krishnadevaraya in a theatre production.
