Last year, Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi made an emphatic return to the big screen with the action-drama ‘Khaidi No 150’ and gave his fans a big reason to rejoice. Directed by VV Vinayak and also featuring Kajal Aggarwal in the lead, it did well at the box office despite facing stiff competition from Balakrishna starrer ‘Gautamiputra Satakarni’ and received rave reviews . With ‘Khaidi No 150’ behind him, Chiranjeevi is currently shooting for ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’. The film is based on the life of a freedom fighter and is being directed by Surender Reddy. Needless to say, the period-drama has already created a buzz amongst fans as it features T-town’s resident megastar in a brand new avatar and is being made on a grand scale.
Now, there is some exciting news for those looking forward to the release of ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’. According to a leading daily, Bollywood star Amitabh will be joining sets soon. Confirming this, a source said that it is a bit premature to talk about the details of his role.
“Yes, it’s true. Amitabh Bachchan will be joining Megastar Chiranjeevi in the subsequent shooting schedule of ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’. It’s premature at the moment to speak about the nature of Amitabh’s role since the makers want to keep it under wraps. But he will start shooting soon, “added the source.
Interestingly, Big B is no stranger to Telugu cinema. In 2014, he made a cameo appearance in ‘Manam’ and left fans asking for more. It will be worth watching what type of a role he has in ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’. Either way, it will a treat to see him interact with Chiranjeevi on the big screen. His presence will also go a long way in adding to the pan-India appal of ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’. Besides Big B, the film also has Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi in key roles.
