Chiranjeevi to shed weight for Koratala Siva’s flick


Megastar Chiranjeevi is currently busy wrapping up his much-awaited period film SyeRaa Narasimha Reddy which is based on the life history of freedom fighter Uyyalawada. To look his part in the role of Uyyalawada, Chiru put on some extra weight before commencing shoot for SyeRaa. Now, he is likely to lose oodles of weight for his next film which will be helmed by Koratala Siva.

Reportedly, Koratala Siva has requested Chiranjeevi to cut down the extra weight and get into a slimmer look for one of the dual roles in the film. It is learnt that Koratala has penned a social drama and Chiru will be seen in two contrasting characters in it. In one of the roles, Chiru will be seen younger than his age with a lean and stylish look. So, Koratala has asked him to go for a makeover after completing SyeRaa.

Sources revealed that Ram Charan has recruited a fitness trainer for Chiranjeevi to transform into a new look. He will suggest a diet regime and training schedule to get into the required look. Koratala Siva’s flick will be launched in August and the regular shooting will commence subsequently.
