Megastar Chiranjeevi did not plan to take a long gap post his movie release, Khaidi No.150 in January. But he wanted to take his time to get into the character of Narasimha Reddy, the first freedom fighter from Telugu land. He is an inspiration for many and he lead a successful campaign for freedom until he is cheated by his own kin. The movie has been in the planning process right from last decade and the writers, Paruchuri Brothers have been waiting for a nod from Chiru from so long.
But the actor had his own reservations to start the project. Now, he felt it is the correct time and after Baahubali success, he decided to make it a Pan-India film. Accordingly, the makers brought Amitabh Bachchan, Vijay Sethupathi, Jagapathi Babu, Keecha Sudeepa, Nayantara as the main cast and there is a talk that Anushka will also be added to the list. Pragya Jaiswal and Ravi Kishan has confirmed their inclusion in the film.
A R Rahman will compose for this movie and fans are eagerly waiting to hear the news that the regular shoots have started. Well, the production team wants to complete the film at a stretch and three massive sets are being constructed in Nanakramguda, Ramoji Film City and Aluminum Factory. The shooting will commence in Ramoji Film City first and then go to different locations. Few on location schedules in Kurnool have also been planned but team doesn’t want to risk taking so many popular actors into the real areas as that can cause huge problem to control the fans. Anyways, the shoot could start in November but no source as confirmed the date yet.
