Hyderabad: The most-awaited teaser of Chiranjeevi’s upcoming period film Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy was released today and it has set the internet on fire.
Set against the backdrop of India’s first war of Independence against the British rule in 1857, the film aims to bring alive the tale of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy.
The teaser begins with a voiceover proclaiming how history has concealed the name of legendary warrior Narasimha Reddy (played by Chiranjeevi), who was the first rebel to wage a war against Britishers. The teaser further produces glimpses of warfare, with a determined Narasimha taking the centre stage to encourage his soldiers for a long battle ahead.
This ambitious venture also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi, Jagapathi Babu, Nayanthara, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah, and Ravi Kishan among others in pivotal roles.
Touted as a Telegu magnum opus, the film has reportedly been made under a huge budget of Rs 150 crore. Ram Charan, who also happens to be Chiranjeevi’s son, has bankrolled the project through Konidela Production Company.
The drama is expected to release later this year in Telugu and will be dubbed in Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam as well. Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy will be distributed in Hindi by AA Films and Farhan Akhtar via Excel Entertainment.
