Chiranjeevi reveals Anushka’s role in 'Sye Raa'
It has been so many days for Telugu audience since they have seen Anushka Shetty on the big screen. She was last seen in Magnum Opus Baahubali 2 and reportedly went to Spain for her weight reduction program. Now, here she is where she belongs to, the war field. After she impressed everyone as 'Rudrama Devi' she is going to unveil her new avatar as Jhansi Laxmi Bhai in 'Sye Raa'.
As expected, Anushka is playing the role of Rani Jhansi Lakshmibai and the story of Sye Raa will be narrated through her. As she wants to motivate her armies to take on the tyrannous Britishers, she tells the story of Telugu hero Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. She will be seen in the stellar star cast including that of Megastar Chiru, Amitabh Bachhan, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi and Nayantara, Tamanna on the ladies front.
Hence she will be seen in the opening shot of the movie. The reason to compromise her character to a narrator is, there is years difference between Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy’s era and Jhansi Laxmi’s reign. Hence it will be legitimate to open the movie with her presence and narration which will give the audience the required hype right from the beginning.
Speaking to Bollywood media, Megastar Chiranjeevi has confirmed that Anushka is playing Lakshmi Bai's role and added that she has done the role to perfection. Megastar stated that they wanted to keep this as a secret but somehow he has to open up now as it was all leaked.
