The teaser of megastar Chiranjeevi’s magnum opus Syeraa Narasimha Reddy (2019) was unveiled amid much fanfare on Tuesday, 20 August. Going by the visuals, the teaser promises to narrate a very inspiring story of a forgotten rebel with a cause.
The teaser opens with the mention of popular revolutionaries such as Bhagat Singh, Rani Laxmibai and Mangal Pandey who are remembered even today. It goes on to introduce Chiranjeevi as Narasimha Reddy, India’s first forgotten rebel who fought against the British rule.
Chiranjeevi is portrayed as an extremely ferocious rebel. We see him telling his comrades that history may not remember them but history should start from them.
Actor Pawan Kalyan has given voice-over to the Telugu version of the teaser. In a recent promo video, he said he’s proud to be associated with such a prestigious project in some way.
The film, directed by Surender Reddy, also features Amitabh Bachchan, Nayanthara, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi and Jagapathi Babu among others in important roles.
On signing the project, Chiranjeevi had said in a statement it was his long-time desire to play a historic character.
“It has always been my dream to play Bhagat Singh. Despite being offered the role back then, I couldn’t play it for several reasons and it was later played by several of my counterparts. It was played by several actors across languages. I regret missing out on an opportunity to play the role because I don’t think anyone wants to make a film on him today,” Chiranjeevi said.
Produced by Ram Charan on a whopping budget of Rs150 crore, the film has music by Amit Trivedi. Syeraa Narasimha Reddy (2019) is due to be released on 2 October.
