Gautamiputra Satakarni History (78-102 A.D.)? – A Brief Historical Facts:

Gautamiputra Satakarni was one of the magnificent Emperors of the ancient India and the greatest amongst all Satavahana Dynasty rulers. He was the son of Sivasvati Satakarni and Gautami Balasri. His achievements and personalities were revealed from the Nasik carving of Balasri.
At the time of his Power, the situation was very dismal for the Satavahanas. In such a forbidding situation, Satakarni did not lose heart. He aroused to the situation and demolished the Sakas, Yavanas and Phalavas. He has eradicated the Ksatrapa dynasty of Nahapana and renewed the glory of the Satavahana family.

As it is a Biographical film, I hope the director may not change much of the roots of the history of the story. But with the powerful mass following image of Nandamuri Balakrishna (#NBK) aka “Ballaya“, there might be few commercial elements expected.
