Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Ruler will release on 20 December and has him playing the role of S Dharma, a cop who seems to be a bit off the rule of law. The teaser shows him wielding a hammer.
This look is in contrast to the more stylish look that was unveiled earlier. The film is directed by KS Ravikumar and has Sonal Chauhan and Vedhika in the female lead roles.
The title and the role are both ironic because Balakrishna defeated a real-life cop in the Hindupur assembly election. His YSRCP rival was retired IPS officer, Mohammed Iqbal. And Balakrishna’s party, the Telugu Desam found its rule coming to an end, with a rout at the hustings.
