Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is a big budget movie featuring megastar Chiranjeevi in the title role. It is a biopic on the legendary freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy who fought the British invasion in the 18th century and lost his life in the process.
The shooting of this magnum opus has been going on for several months now and recently Nayanthara has joined the sets. The female lead has allotted three days of her call sheet for this film and the team is busy canning as many scenes as they could with her, say sources. Nayan apparently has a meaty role to play in Sye Raa and her performance will do the rest of the talking, we hear.
The film unit had returned from Georgia recently where they had been shooting the all-important war sequence. This will be a visual treat for the audiences and has come out well. The Sye Raa team will be completing the rest of the schedules in India.
The biopic is being bankrolled by Ram Charan Teja under his home banner Konidela Production Company on a budget of Rs 200 crore. It has a bevvy of stars from different film industries including Amitabh Bachchan who will be seen making a guest appearance as Gosayi Venkanna.
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, with A Sreekar Prasad editing it and Amit Trivedi wielding the music baton. It is a trilingual that will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Sye Raa is scheduled for release next year and the date will be revealed officially soon, we hear.
Nayanthara also has a yet-untitled project with Sivakarthikeyan in her kitty. This year has been great for Nayanthara with two back-to-back blockbusters. With Kolamavu Kokila and Imaikka Nodigal, she has emerged as the only leading lady with films that have done business over Rs 100 crore.
