Megastar Chiranjeevi spared no effort to ensure that Amitabh bachchan had two memorable days in Hyderabad.
On Thursday evening, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan completed shooting for his cameo for Chiranjeevi-starrer Sye Raa that is based on the life of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. On his part, Chiranjeevi took utmost care of Big B in Hyderabad.
“The Megastar of Tollywood gave his Rolls Royce to Big B to travel from the hotel to the shooting location. The car stayed with Bachchan for the entire two days,” says a source.
Security was also beefed up. “In Tollywood, when a big star is on location, other actors can meet him in his caravan or on the sets. But Big B’s security personnel didn’t allow anyone to meet him. Not just that, local filmmakers and the State Government also provided him with their security,” says a source from the unit. Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to share a few pictures from the sets. “The filmmakers were okay with the superstar revealing his look online, as also sharing glimpses of Chiranjeevi and Nayanthara’s looks. Many praised Brahmaji too for his appearance in the film,” adds the source. Meanwhile, Pawan Kalyan met Big B on Thursday along with his family.
While in normal course, Telugu filmmakers would never release pictures like this, in this case, they couldn’t question Amitabh.
“SYE RA .. !! Narasimha Reddy .. the joy and honour of working with Chiranjeevi Garu!! (sic),” wrote Amitabh on his Twitter account.
Sources say Big B came to Hyderabad from Mumbai on a chartered flight which he booked himself.
