Megastar Chiranjeevi is playing the role of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy in upcoming period film SyeRaa. The historical drama is directed by Surender Reddy and produced by Ram Charan. As the story is set against the backdrop of British era, there will be plenty of fight sequences in this magnum opus.
It is learnt that Chiranjeevi underwent rigorous and intensive training to hone horse riding and sword fighting skills. Despite being on the wrong side of 60 years, Chiranjeevi spent nearly 6 hours daily for a couple of months to train for the war episodes. He has been hitting the gym regularly and following a strict diet to maintain a fit avatar through out the film.
He is currently heading to Georgia for a heavy duty battle sequence which will be canned in an open area with hundreds of fighters. This particular sequence is said to remain as one of the major highlights in the film.
