“When we take the life story of a prominent personality after 100 years, it becomes history. According to the Supreme Court’s ruling, anybody can make a film on anyone after 100 years of their death,” he said.
He was apparently referring to the protest by a few descendants of Narasimha Reddy who staged a protest outside Ram Charan’s production office in Hyderabad, demanding compensation for sharing information about their forefather.
Ram Charan added: “I cannot bring down the stature of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy by helping just a few members of his family. If I really want to do something, I shall help the district and village of Uyyalawada as a token of respect to the great freedom fighter.”
Directed by Surrender Reddy, the film is based on the life of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, who was one of the first Indian warriors to fight against British rule. Nayanthara plays the wife of Chiranjeevi in the film while Amitabh Bachchan will be seen as his mentor.
