Hyderabad: Something that is sure to send Telugu moviegoers into a frenzy is the mention of Megastar Chiranjeevi. The actor has been churning out multiple hits over the decades. His dance steps, charm and charisma, which he retains even at the age of 64 years, has ensured an ever-growing fan base and cult following that is comparable to that enjoyed by NTR.
Chiranjeevi is working on his next film with director Koratla Siva. The shooting is going on in full swing and fans are waiting with bated breath to see their megastar on the big screen again.
Adding to the fan frenzy is the fact that all of Koratla Siva’s movies till date have been hits at the box-office. Dil Raju has supposedly bought the Nizam rights for the film for an undisclosed amount for its distribution in Telangana. He had made a killing at the box-office recently with the Sankranti releases of Sarielru and Ala Vaikunthapuramlo. Now with all three hit machines, Chiranjeevi, Koratla Siva and Dil Raju coming together, this movie is sure to have the Midas touch and strike gold.
The actor’s last film, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, was of the epic action genre. It was produced by his son, Ram Charan and focused on the independence struggle against the British in the Rayalseema region of Andhra Pradesh led by the lesser-known freedom fighter, Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. The film had a stellar cast, including Amitabh Bachchan, Vijay Sethupathi, Sudeep, Nassar, Ravi Kishan, Jagapathi Babu Nayanthara, Tamanna Bhatia and Anushka Shetty with each of them playing intriguing roles. Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy was received well by both fans and critics and went on to earn over Rs 200 crore. Moreover, the film spread the heroics and extraordinary story of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy’s rebellion against the British Empire throughout the country.
