According to the reports, Tamannah Bhatia has been roped into play an important character in Megastar Chiranjeevi’s upcoming Telugu period epic ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’. This film is based upon a freedom fighter who led India’s struggle to freedom way before Mahatma Gandhi and Shaheed Bhagat Singh. He is believed to have started the revolt before Mangal Pandey in 1857. Cast of the film is rather epic with superstar Amitabh Bachchan also playing a very important character in the film to make sure that it becomes a pan-Indian saleable film to recover the massive budgets.
Chiranjeevi is one of the biggest stars in the country though his glory days are behind him but he is still getting such an epic film riding on his shoulder. Chiranjeevi is quite literally worshiped in Andhra Pradesh but does not have much of an audience in the northern belt of the country but neither did Prabhas and Baahubali was still very welcomed. Bachchan’s look from the film was revealed a few days back with a Gandalf long white beard and fierceness of a warrior who has seen far too many battles to actually encourage one.
Post the humongous success of Baahubali, many south Indian producers are investing in the films of similar tonality to break the bank on ticket window. Baahubali opened the doors for epics in the country and they are being made without a care. Madhu Mantena with few other people is producing a 500 crore Ramayana project which is yet to find cast and crew. Aamir Khan might be going ahead to pursue his dream of making Mahabharata which is apparently being funded by Mukesh Ambani as he is willing to shell out 1000 crores. Chiyaan Vikram has a Karna film to be made which is over 300 crores of budget estimation. ‘Sye Raa Narsimha Reddy’ will be coming out next year.
