With Balakrishna’s Gauthamiputra Satarkini (GPS) winding down, the actor has already decided on his next. He will start Krishna Vamsi’s Rythu next. The film will be a social message driven movie which brings to light the plight of farmers. GPS is scheduled to release on Sankranthi 2017. The film is directed by Krish who is racing against time to complete shooting and start the extensive VFX needed for the historic drama.

It will go head to head with Chiranjeevi’s Khaidhi No 150 which is also a Sankranthi release. This is the 19th time the two senior actors have clashed off at the box office.
