The shooting of mega star Chiranjeevi starrer Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy suffered a temporary setback after the revenue department officials demolished the sets erected for the film. According to sources, the sets were erected in a 28-acre land on Road No. 25 near Bhooth Bangla for shooting.

However, this land is in legal dispute and the film unit had constructed the set without obtaining permission and the officials had no other option but to demolish it. Earlier, some important scenes of the film were shot in a 100-acre land belonging to Chiru near Kokapet. With the revenue department officials razing down the sets built for Sye Raa, the film has suffered a minor setback.

A Srinivas, revenue divisional officer (RDO) for Rangareddy district told the Indian Express, “We have also contacted the production team who agreed to sort out the things with the landowner, failing which we destroyed the sets after two days. As of now, we haven’t received any application from either of them.”

It may be mentioned here that recently a war sequence between the British soldiers and Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy’s army was shot during a 35-day schedule which will be the highlight of the film.

Directed by Surendar Reddy, a lot of research as gone into the making of Sye Raa, as it is a biopic on the legendary freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy.

The film is being bankrolled by Chiru’s son and actor Ram Charan Teja under his home banner Konidela Production Company on a budget of Rs 200 crores. 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. Incidentally, this film will mark the debut of music composer Amit Trivedi in the Telugu film industry.

The film is scheduled to hit the silver screen during the first month of next year.
