In the name of Manikarnika, Bollywood starlet Kangana Ranaut has played the first ever larger than life role of her career as she slipped into the shoes of Rani Jhansi Lakshmibai. And then, this film “Manikarnika” got popular in Telugu as well not for its release but due to the controversy, Kangana created around the movie with director Krish’s name.
It looks like Megastar Chiranjeevi and his team have got the unique idea giving a twist to Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy’s life, adding that Jhansi Lakshmibai actually got inspired by Reddy’s daring acts regarding her fight for freedom. Yes, none other than Anushka will play the role of Jhansi Lakshmibai in Sye Raa, and she will be narrating the story of Uyyalawada to her wounded soldiers on the battleground to motivate them.
Reports are coming that already Anushka has completed the total part of her shoot and Sye Raa team is super happy with the output. This is the second time this heroine playing the role of a historical figure after she appeared as Rani Rudramadevi in Gunasekhar’s direction. However, the addition of Kangana would have given the real twist to Sye Raa thereby bringing some sort of authenticity, but Anushka is no less.
Directed by Surender Reddy and bankrolled by Ram Charan, Sye Raa is hitting cinemas on October 2nd.
