He is now gearing up for a period flick titled Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy based on the life on the freedom fighter. The film has an impressive star cast including the likes of Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan, Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi and Kannada actor Kichcha Sudeep. While Nayantara plays the female lead opposite Chiru, Tamannaah too will be seen in a key role.
