The expectations on ‘Sye Raa’, the highly anticipated 151st film of Megastar Chiranjeevi, went higher after the release of film’s first look motion poster along with the cast and crew. Everything looks to be in place for this magnum opus but the shooting hasn’t commenced yet. So, what/who is stopping the film from taking off?
We have learnt that ‘Dialogues’ is the prime reason for the film’s delay. Acclaimed writer Sai Madhav Burra, who penned exceptional dialogues for historical film ‘Gautamiputra Satakarni’, has already completed the film’s dialogue version. However, this version is currently being rewritten as Rayalaseema slang has to be infused in major part of the dialogues.
Besides Dialogues, ‘Set work’ is another reason for the delay. Since Sye Raa is the story of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, the art department is busy creating the Pre-Independence era. Huge sets are being erected in the supervision of noted art director Rajeevan.
Both the works on dialogues and sets’ construction are expected to be completed in a month’s time, and the shooting will commence from October second half. Major cast is already on board. Coming to heroines, Nayanthara has been signed, and Pragya Jaiswal and Anushka are being considered for two other female lead roles. Ram Charan is bankrolling this project on an uncompromising scale.
