It’s usually the star parents who launch their kids into the world of films, but it’s rare when a son produces a movie featuring his father. Children often consider their dads as ‘Superman’ and it seems Ram Charan too felt so, as he believed his father Chiranjeevi would be perfect for the titular role of a freedom fighter in Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. The veteran actor-politician has justified his trust by performing some intense action sequences in the multi-starrer period drama. Despite their strong bond, now also on a professional level, Chiranjeevi couldn’t recognise who ‘Ram’ was as he and the team got busy with promotions ahead of the release.
While Bollywood sometimes goes over-the-top with movie promotions, the South industry usually host just one or two events before the release. However, one can understand that Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is a big film, since Chiranjeevi and team have made Mumbai their abode for a few days for the promotions. The Khaidi No 150 star, along with co-star Tamannaah Bhatia also spoke exclusively to Republic TV before the period war drama hits the theatres. One of the interesting moments during the interview was when Chiranjeevi couldn’t understand who ‘Ram’ was.
He was asked how being the producer, Ram Charan made his father perform high-octane sequences and if he was a ‘hard taskmaster.’ The Telugu superstar asked, “Who is Ram?” It was then that Tamannaah told that the question was about Ram Charan, after which Chiranjeevi, said, “Ram Charan? Okay, sorry” and laughed out loud. Watch the interview above:
The movie is the story of one of the first freedom fighters of India, Ujjwala Narasimha Reddy, who fought against the British much before widely known first freedom independence movement of 1857. The movie, apart from Chiranjeevi and Tamannaah, also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nayanthara, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi, Ravi Kishan, Anushka Shetty, Jagapathy Babu, among others. The film has been directed by Surender Reddy. ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’ is gearing up for release on Wednesday. The movie is set to witness a big clash with Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff-starrer ‘War’ on Gandhi Jayanti.
