Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is a biopic on Rayalaseema freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. He is considered to be one of the first freedom fighters in India and his first revolt against the British rule came a decade before India’s first war of independence in 1857. He was captured and publicly hanged in 1847.
The mega-budget film is being made in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi on a lavish budget. Chiranjeevi’s star son Ram Charan Teja is bankrolling the project. It also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi.
Sudeep was in Belgrade for about 26-days shooting some major action sequences for Kotigobba 3. The film directed by Shiva Karthik, also stars Madonna Sebastian, Aftab Shivdasani, Ravi Shankar, Shraddha Das and Tabla Nani among others.
The crew will next head to Bangkok and Malaysia, said reports.
