There were a lot of speculations about who would be playing the female lead role in Chiranjeevi’s upcoming film which will be based on the life of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narsimha Reddy. To be directed by Surender Reddy, the film is yet to be titled. The story and dialogues for the film are being written by veteran writer-brothers duo Paruchuri brothers.
There were reports earlier that Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai is being considered for this role but nothing was confirmed. There were rumours that Aishwarya had quoted a huge amount and the makers were taken aback with that. But nothing was confirmed at that point in time.
Now, it’s been confirmed that Nayanthara has been confirmed as the female lead in this Chiranjeevi film. After much speculation, the makers have now finalised the lead role without delaying it any further. News also has it that the film will be officially launched on August 15th, 2017 and the title may be revealed one that day. This is the first time that Nayanthara will be acting alongside Mega Star Chiranjeevi in her career.
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.
