Earlier this year, megastar Chiranjeevi made an emphatic return to the big screen with ‘Qaidi No 150’ and proved that he is still the top king of Telugu cinema. Also featuring Kajal Aggarwal in the lead, it did well at the ticket window despite facing competition from NBK’s ‘Gautampiputra Satakarni’ and earned favourable reviews as well. Sometime thereafter, he revealed that his next project would be the highly ambitious ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ and created a buzz amongst the fans. The film’s first look was unveiled on Chiranjeevi’s birthday and it was confirmed that the film’s music would be composed by maestro AR Rahman.
Now, in a surprising development, ARR has opted out of ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’. While talking about this decision. He said that he has a packed schedule and cannot give dates to the magnum opus.
“I’m human. I need to be practical on how much work I can take up,” he added.
However, at the same time, he added that he has tremendous respect for Chiranjeevi and feels that film has a terrific plot.
Well, this is a setback and it will be worth watching who ultimately replaces the ‘Mozart of Madaras’.
On a related note, ‘Sye Raa Narasimha’ is a period drama and will be directed by Surender Reddy. Besides Chiru, it also features ‘Lady Superstar’ Nayanthara and Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan in the lead.
