NTR not only wanted to make a film on Gautamiputra Satakarni, he actually prepared the script and some sketches! The makers of the Balakrishna film reveal that NTR was all set to make the film on Satakarni after his Srinatha Kavi Sarvabhouma. There was also a proposal to cast Venkatesh as Satakarni son Pulomavi. However since NTR decided to jump headlong into politics, the movie did not take off. See the sketch of NTR as Gautamiputra Satakarni.
