Sye Raa in trouble: Muslim groups oppose the film
After a series of biopics, Tollywood is gearing up for yet another biopic titled Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. Directed by Surender Reddy, the film stars Chiranjeevi, Nayanthara, Amitabh Bachchan and Sudeep in important roles.
Recently, the makers had erected huge sets at the Bahmani castle in Bidar. They have also erected statues of Hindu gods at the castle. However, certain section of Muslim youths took offence to the placement of Hindu gods in a Muslim castle.
They had complained to the Archaeological department against the team asking them to remove the statues. The shoot schedule which included Chiranjeevi and Sudeep had to be halted because of this reason.
Now, it is said that the makers are planning to put up the set somewhere else in the castle. Also, the shooting is expected to continue with security beefed up at the venue.
