The first schedule of Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa is completed in the last week of December. The makers have canned an important action sequence on Chiranjeevi and other artists in Aluminium Factory in this schedule which went on for a couple of weeks. Chiranjeevi has taken a break for the New Year and Sankranthi holidays and has headed to his Bengaluru Farmhouse. The second schedule of the movie will begin only in the first week of February. A few important scenes with village backdrop will be shot in the second schedule. The unit will move to the picturesque Tamil Nadu village of Pollachi for the second schedule. Interestingly, Chiranjeevi has taken off his beard and moustache leaving the fans guessing if it is for the new look of Sye Raa which will be used in the second schedule.
Sye Raa will have big names in its ranks like Bollywood Superstar Amitabh Bachchan, and Kannada Superstar Sudeep. Jagapathi Babu and Nayantara are also the part of the cast. These names will strengthen the movie in other markets as well. The movie will be released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, and Malayalam languages simultaneously. The Release Plan is yet to be finalized. Buzz is that the movie may release for Sankranthi 2019. Cinematographer Ravi Varman and Music Director AR Rahman have opted out of the project citing dates issue. Sye Raa lost its sheen as a result. Rathnavelu has come in Ravi Varman’s place and the makers are yet to announce the replacement of AR Rahman.
