Narthanasala is an interesting film that released in 1963 which is based on the Hindu epic Mahabharata. Later in 2004, Nandamuri Balakrishna came up with an official announcement that he is going to remake the film. The project, however, was scrapped after the death of Soundarya who was supposed to play Draupadi.
Finally Naga Shaurya, who is basking in the glory of his previous offering Chalo, is going to act in Narthanasala. The film is directed by a debutante Sreenivas Chakravarthy, the protégé of Vamshi Paidipally. It is said to be dealing a contemporary subject and the regular shoot is expected from April. The film will have two heroines alongside Shaurya.
