Actor Anushka Shetty, last seen on screen in Bhaagamathie (2018), has finally commenced work on her next project. On Monday, 13 May, she joined the sets of megastar Chiranjeevi’s upcoming magnum opus Syeraa Narasimha Reddy (2020) in which she plays a brief but important character.
According to reports, Anushka will be playing the role of a narrator that will introduce Chiranjeevi’s character. She will also appear in a crucial scene right before the interval. Directed by Surender Reddy, Syeraa Narasimha Reddy will narrate the story of Kurnool-based freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy.
The film, which is being produced by Ram Charan on a budget of Rs. 150 crore, also features Amitabh Bachchan, Nayanthara, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi and Jagapathi Babu among others in important roles.
Amitabh Bachchan plays Chiranjeevi’s mentor in this magnum opus. Last March, he had joined the film’s sets and he was thrilled to be part of this project. Before joining the sets, he shared a blog post in which he wrote about why this film is special.
“Dear friend Chiranjeevi, that majestic super star and icon from the world of Andhra and Telugu cinema, requests for a guest appearance in his magnum opus, on a most valiant period character that he portrays, and I agree. So, am off to begin its shoot in Hyderabad in a few hours,” he wrote and shared his look from the film.
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy (2020), which will hit the screens next year, marks the southern debut of popular Hindi film composer Amit Trivedi.
