After the huge success of his comeback film ‘Khaidi No 150’, Megastar Chiranjeevi is all set to kick-start the regular shoot of his next movie ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ from today (Wednesday). Director Surender Reddy has readied everything for the shoot including huge sets at Aluminium factory in Kondapur in Hyderabad. A huge set has been erected under the supervision of art director Rajeevan.
According to the reports, the makers of this epic patriotic-drama which was launched with a formal pooja ceremony in August, have carried out extensive pre-production works with a no holds barred approach to production costs. The physique and new makeover of Chiranjeevi for the movie have already become a discussion point among filmy holics.
After cameraman Ravi Varman and music composer A R Rahman walked out of the project, the film suddenly lost its sheen. With two big names opting out, Chiranjeevi was furious with the team. Then producer Ram Charan swung into the action and set things straight. Now, Rathnavelu will be handling the camera work while on the other side, the announcement regarding the new music director is yet to be made by the makers.
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy will be made on a whooping budget of over Rs 150 crores and the film is expected to be released on Sankranthi 2019. Sye Raa star cast also includes Amitabh Bachchan, Nayanthara, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi, Jagapathi Babu and Pragya Jaiswal.
