For his 151st film, the Tollywood mega star Chiranjeevi is looking to have a great star cast. Sources are rife with the news that Chiru wants to have the Bollywood divas, Priyanka Chopra and Sonakshi Sinha play the leading ladies. Talks are on with the actors and they are yet to give their assent, state sources. Interestingly, Priyanka Chopra had shared the screen space with Chiruâ€™s son Ram Charan in Thoofan / Zanjeer and Sonakshi had worked with Superstar Rajinikanth in Linga.
Apart from the discussion with the heroines, talks are on to have the Oscar winning music director AR Rahman on board. While the mega star is looking forward to cast some big names in Bollywood, Tollywood and Kollywood in this film, reports are that Ravi Kishan has bagged the role of the main villain in it. Sources say that director Surendar Reddy is busy with the groundwork and is working hard to get this project on the floors either in August or September this year.
Chiruâ€™s 151st film is based on the life of the late freedom fighter Uyyalavada Narasimha Reddy. The mega star will be playing the 18th century freedom fighter who gave up his life a decade before the Sepoy Mutiny or the First War of Independence in 1857.
Very little literature is available about the great freedom fighter but the director of the film, Surendar Reddy, has done a lot of research to bring the character to life, say sources. To fit into the character, Chiru will be undergoing a major makeover as far as his looks and costumes are concerned. It will certainly be a visual treat for all the megastarâ€™s fans out there.
The film will be bankrolled by Chiruâ€™s son Ram Charan under their home banner Konidela Production Company.
