The Sye Raa team is presently in Georgia shooting for a big war episode of the period drama. Chiranjeevi is playing the lead role of freedom fighter Uyyalavada Narasimha Reddy while his son Ram Charan is the producer. Earlier, Ram Charan had announced that he would do anything to ensure the success of his film.
Now, according to a source, he is spending `54 crore on this ongoing war episode that is being shot in Georgia. “It will appear in the climax and runs for eight minutes, but it costs nearly `54 crore,” says a source.
Nearly 150 people travelled to Georgia from Hyderabad for this shoot along with hundreds of costumes. The team also hired nearly 600 local artistes to participate in the war episode.
The makers apparently found a big open space to shoot the sequence in Georgia, which has become a preferred destination for many South films. Meanwhile, the Sye Raa team will stay there for nearly five weeks....
