Chiranjeevi’s 151st film has been in the news lately for many reasons, the cast of the film being one of them. After many months of its announcement, this film got a leading lady recently after an announcement came out recently that Nayanthara will be playing the female lead role. Besides Nayanthara and Chiranjeevi, the only actor that has been finalised is Ravi Kishan. Apart from these actors, rest of the cast if yet to be announced by the makers of the film.
But now, according to emerging reports, Kannada Real Star Upendra might play an important role in Chiranjeevi’s 151st film which will be based on the life of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narsimha Reddy. Directed by Surender Reddy, Chiranjeevi will play the titular role in this film.
Upendra has recently acted in Allu Arjun’s film S/O Satyamurthy which was directed by Trivikram Srinivas. Upendra impressed everyone with his performance as a baddie and has, once again, won many hearts in the Telugu states. Upendra has appeared in many Telugu films in the past too.
Mega Star Chiranjeevi will play the role of the freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narsimha Reddy in the film and will sport an aggressive look in the film. The production design and the styling team of the film have come together to come up with sketches for the character that Chiranjeevi plays in the film which appear to set in the early late 1800s and early 1900s.
The film will be produced Chiranjeevi’s son, Ram Charan, under their home banner Konidela Productions which also produced Chiranjevi’s comeback and 150th film, Khaidi No 150.
