Chennai, July 8 (IANS) Actor and wrestler Nathan Jones, last seen in “Mad Max: Fury Road”, is not part of Nandamuri Balakrishna-starrer Telugu period-drama “Gauthamiputra Satakarni”, which is currently on the floors in Georgia.
“Although we approached him for an important role, things didn’t pan out the way we’d expected. Hence, we couldn’t rope him in,” producer Y. Rajeev Reddy told IANS.
Nathan was rumoured to be playing the chief of the Greeks in the battle with Satavahanas, headed by Balakrishna.
Having already completed two battle sequences in Morocco and Hyderabad respectively, the makers are currently filming the final battle scene in Georgia.
This schedule features over 1000 junior artists as soldiers, 300 horses and 20 chariots.
Also starring Shriya Saran, Kabir Bedi and Hema Malini, the film has music by Devi Sri Prasad.
Jones has already been part of Tamil film “Bhooloham”, and is playing the antagonist in Tiger Shroff’s upcoming film, “A Flying Jatt”.
