In a recent development, Nayanthara is back on the sets of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and scenes that involve her and Chiranjeevi are being filmed right now.
When she was on the sets of the film much earlier, her scenes with Chiranjeevi and the Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan were filmed.
Directed by Surender Reddy, this biopic on the legendary freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy is being bankrolled by Chiranjeevi’s son and actor Ram Charan Teja on a budget of Rs 200 crore.
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy has a bevy of stars from different film industries including Amitabh Bachchan, who will be seen in a guest role. The others in the star cast are Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara, Tamannaah, Jagapathi Babu, Kiccha Sudeep, Pragya Jaiswal and Brahmaji.
R. Rathnavelu is the cameraman for this film.
The shooting of this magnum opus is currently underway with the war sequence between Uyyalawada’s soldiers and the British Army being wrapped up at present. Now, other scenes are being canned, especially the romantic scenes between the lead pair.
The screen play for this biopic has been penned by the director and the dialogues have been written by Sai Madhav Burra. Sye Raa is a historical set in the 18th century.
In July, the filming in Hyderabad had come to a standstill due to heavy rains lashing the area.
It may be mentioned here that when the project was announced it had Oscar winner AR Rahman and Santosh Sivan onboard for music composing and cinematography respectively but they later opted out.
The film is scheduled for release later this year or early next year and the exact release date is expected to be announced officially soon.
Meanwhile, there are speculations that the teaser would be out on the actor’s birthday on August 22.
