A still from the first schedule of Chiranjeevi starrer Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.

Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, a film which will retell the epic story of Kurnool-based freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, went on the floors towards the end of last year and the team shot a major action sequence in the supervision of international stunt choreographer Lee Whittaker. With nearly 25 percent of the project wrapped up, the team has completed its first schedule last week and now will commence its second schedule next month.

“Since the film features many stars, the team is finding it difficult to have all of them together as each one is busy with their respective commitments. Hence, the project is taking longer than expected to be shot. Having already spent over 6 months on shooting, the team has only managed to shoot 25 percent because of the unavailability of all the actors when needed,” a source told Hindustan Times.

Being directed by Surender Reddy, the film features ensemble cast that includes Amitabh Bachchan, Kannada superstar Kichcha Sudeep and Jagapathi Babu among others. Actor Tamannaah Bhatia was recently signed to play a crucial role too. Last seen in SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2, this is Tamannaah’s next big Telugu outing. Even though she has Kalyan Ram’s Naa Nuvve in her kitty, this film is huge by many standards. Contrary to some reports, she’s not playing a cameo. Her character requires a lot of research and she’s taking the required help from experts to understand it better.

Actor Nayanthara, who was not part of the film’s first schedule, recently commenced shooting for the film. Apparently, she had set aside dates for Ajith’s Viswasam and since the film’s shoot was stalled due to the recent strike between TFPC and Digital Service Providers, she used those dates for Chiranjeevi starrer. The film is being produced by Ram Charan on a lavish budget of Rs 150 crore. A.R Rahman was originally signed to compose music, but he opted out of the project earlier this year due to his other commitments. The makers are yet to find a replacement.
