The makers of Nandamuri Balakrishna's upcoming film NBK 106 unveiled the teaser of the film a day prior to the actor's birthday. The teaser features the actor making a smashing entry sporting a white shirt and lungi.
Laabam is mired by tiresome public speeches, awkward fights, dance numbers and television debates, none of which add any value to the story.
Naga Chaitanya, Sai Pallavi's film Love Story, directed by Sekhar Kammula, will release in theatres on 24 September
Minnal Murali was set to release theatrically in 2020 but the film was postponed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Netflix is yet to announce a release date for the movie.
