In the last couple of years, there have been just about five movies that were dubbed in Kannada following some pro-Kannada outfits seeking a ban so that Kannada movies could get enough patronage. Even one of the most successful films in Indian cinema, Baahubali 2 faced a stiff opposition from these outfits from releasing in Karnataka.
This has now raised the big question if Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy would be released in Kannada and if so would there be any opposition? Well, a section of those in the film circles opine that there may be no big opposition as the film has the Kannada star Sudeep in a pivotal role.
To get a clearer picture on its Kannada release, we may have to wait for some more time. Meanwhile, plans are on to release it in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi. Sudeep plays an important role in the film. His first look in it has been released and it looks like he has an interesting role to play in the film. Clad in a full black outfit replete with a turban, Sudeep will be seen as Avuku Raja in it.
Directed by Surendhar Reddy, Sye Raa is being bankrolled by 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, 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, which is the biopic of the legendary freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, has megastar Chiranjeevi in the titular role.
Sye Raa team is headed to Europe for the next schedule. Some important scenes, including action sequences will be shot there for a period of over a month, say sources.
