- Chiranjeevi’s much awaited period film Sye Raa shooting to be delayed yet again
- The film which was supposed to go on the floor in November will now begin in January 2018
- The reason for the delay is cited as producer Ram Charan’s film Rangasthalam 1985
The shooting of the much awaited 151 film of Megastar Chiranjeevi has been delayed once again and probably may only begin in January 2018. Chiranjeevi will be seen in a historical film Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy based on the story of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy.
The huge budget film is being produced by his son Ram Charan under the Konidela Banner with Surender Reddy at the helm. The first look of the film was released on Chiranjeevi’s birthday on 22 August, 2017 and the film was to go begin shooting in October but till date there is clarity as to when the film will go on the floor.
At first it was said the huge set being erected outside Hyderabad is yet to be completed. Then the delay was because of Ram Charan who is busy with the completion of his film Rangasthalam 1985 and handed over the production responsibility of Sye Raa to his wife Upasana.
But news now says that the Rs 150 crore budget film will begin in January 2018 after the completion of Rangasthalam 1985.
Sye Raa is being made in Telugu, Hindi and Tamil and has notable cast like Amitabh Bachchan, Nasser, Sudheep Kicha and with Nayantara as the female lead.
