'Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy' marks the second time collaboration of Rathnavelu and Chiranjeevi after 'Khaidi No 150'.

Shooting of the much anticipated ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ has begun on Wednesday in a specially made set in Hyderabad. The patriotic drama will have Chiranjeevi in the title role, while Surender Reddy directs it.

It’s already known that Oscar winning music composer AR Rahman has backed out from the project citing his busy schedule. Now, it appears that the cinematographer has also been changed. Earlier, renowned DOP Ravi Varman name was on the list of technical crew. But now, ace cinematographer Rathnavelu has replaced him.

Rathnavelu took to Twitter to wish the ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ team on the occasion of the commencement of its shoot.

“Honoured to be a part of this Epic Journey Sayeraa.. once again with Megastar n  Ram Charan !!  Konidela Pro Best wishes to Suri n team.” (sic) he tweeted.

Earlier, Rathnavelu had worked for ‘Khaidi No 150’ and is currently working for Ram Charan’s ‘Rangasthalam 1985’.   

On the other side, according to sources, the makers are in talks to rope in a music director, who is making waves in the industry. 

‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nayanthara, Kiccha Sudeep and Vijay Sethupathi.
