Surender Reddy meets Amitabh Bachchan
Posted [relativedate] at [relativetime time_format=”H:i”]
Director Surender Reddy took off to Mumbai to meet the Bollywood Megastar Big B, Amitabh Bachchan. Surprisingly, even Big B was not heard speaking about ‘Sye Raa… Narasimha Reddy’ anywhere in recent times. This only fueled the speculation (and rumours) that Big B has walked out of the project. Surender Reddy’s meeting with Amitabh Bachchan has finally put an end to all these speculations.
It is understood that Amitabh will be playing the role of Gosai Venkanna, the guru (master) of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy (Megastar Chiranjeevi), in the film. Gosai Venkanna played a very important role in the revolt against the British, according to historians.
In fact, it was under Gosai Venkanna that Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy transformed into a leader of the masses. Though the screen time of Gosai Venkanna, or Amitabh Bachchan in the film, will be limited, it would have a strong impact. For the very same reason, Surender Reddy wanted to rope someone like Amitabh Bachchan, who not only has a pan-India image, but also one of the most celebrated actors in the history of Indian Cinema.
The second schedule shooting of ‘Sye Raa… Narasimha Reddy’ will commence from February 23rd in Hyderabad. Both Amitabh Bachchan and Nayantara will be joining the sets.
