The Logo of Megastar Chiranjeevi’s 151st film, the biopic of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy will be unveiled on 22nd of this month as the actor’s Birthday Special. The movie will have its launch that day and the regular shoot will begin later.

Dhruva fame Surender Reddy is the director for this historical film. Mega Power Star Ram Charan who turned into a producer with Khaidi No 150 will be bankrolling this historical project as well.

Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, based on the life of well-known freedom fighter, the makers have decided to give his fans a glimpse of the film on his birthday on August 22. The title logo of the film, to be produced by Ram Charan, will be released on the occasion of Chiranjeevi’s 61st birthday, a reliable source close to the veteran star confirmed.

The makers are considering making the film as a bilingual – which will include in Tamil as well – as the subject will appeal to universal audiences and they don’t mind exploring the possibility of catering beyond Telugu audiences.

 It’s been Chiranjeevi’s long-time desire to play a historical character. Earlier this year, on his show Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu, he admitted having regretted missing out an opportunity to play legendary Bhagat Singh. “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 had said.

To be directed by Surender Reddy, the film also stars Nayanthara, who was paid a whopping Rs 4 crores to be part of the project. The rest of the cast and crew will be finalized soon. It’s going to be the biggest project in Chiranjeevi’s career and he will be seen sporting twirled mustache for his role.
