Chiranjeevi's 151st film now has an official title and a motion poster. On the Telugu superstar's 62nd birthday, the makers launched the first look motion poster of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Chiranjeevi's film based on the story of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. The film will be produced by Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan and also features Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan in a pivotal role. The motion poster starts with a close up of a fort with a burning British flag. In a few seconds, the focus shifts to the fort boundaries with people rejoicing and slain British soldiers on the ground and ends with the image of a warrior, looking at the fort with a sword in one hand and a bow in the other - we know that's Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, who put up a tough fight against the British forces in the nascent stage of rebellion in 1846.
