Last year, Telugu star Chiranjeevi made a successful comeback to the big screen with ‘Khaidi No 150’ and gave his fans a big reason to rejoice. A remake of the Tamil hit ‘Kaththi’, it also featured Kajal Aggarwal in the lead and did well at the box office despite releasing alongside Balakrishna starrer ‘Gautamiputra Satakarni’. With ‘Khaidi No 150’ in the rearview, Chiranjeevi is currently working on ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’. The film is being directed by noted filmmaker Surender Reddy and will see the megastar play the titular role. In December, Chiranjeevi wrapped the first schedule of the film and got things rolling.
As it so happens, a few days ago, he was seen in a clean-shaven never avatar. And, not surprisingly, this led to speculation of him donning the new look in the second schedule of ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’. However, according to a leading website, Chiru will be growing back the beard before the second schedule begins. Talking about this, a source said that Chiranjeevi went in for a clean-shaven look in order make the process prosthetic scanning easier and faster.
“His clean shaven look is for the purpose of prosthetic scanning for the film. It required him to take off his mustache and beard as the process is a faster, cleaner and less invasive alternative to traditional casting. He will grow back his beard and mustache before the next schedule in February,” added the source.
Well, we hope that this clarification puts all doubts to rest. In case you did not know, ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ is being produced by Ram Charan and is one of the most ambitious projects of the megastar’s career. Its supporting cast features names such as Vijay Sethupathi and Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan.
