Kichcha Sudeep, who is gearing up for the release of Salman Khan starrer action and romantic drama Dabangg 3, recently interacted with media as a part of promotional activities and spoke at length about why Megastar Chiranjeevi starrer Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy didn’t work at the box office. Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy was Chiranjeevi’s dream project. It is a biopic on freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, directed by Surender Reddy and is bankrolled by Ram Charan under the banner of Konidela productions, which was released on 2nd October 2019.
Sye Raa has Lady superstar Nayantara, Vijay Sethupathi, Kichcha Sudeep, Tamannah Bhatia, and Anushka Shetty but it became fail to create magic at the box office. Kichcha Sudeep who was also the part of Chiranjeevi starrer Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, said, “Sye Raa had a cultural problem. It was a biopic on someone (Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy) coming from the South. You can’t fantasize when it’s a biopic. The makers have to show the reality and elaborate it. On the other side, SS Rajamouli’ magnum opus Baahubali was a total fantasy movie. People could watch it like a Walt Disney movie, like a fairy tale. Whereas a biopic has truth to it.”
Kichcha Sudeep concluded it by saying that Sye Raa is a biopic whereas Baahubali is a fantasy movie that is the main reason, Baahubali starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannah Bhatia worked at the box office and Sye Raa didn’t.
Kichcha Sudeep also showered praises on SS Rajamouli and said, “Rajamouli is a fast learner.”
Earlier Kichcha Sudeep and Rajamouli have worked together for Eega starring Natural star Nani and Samantha Akkineni, which was super hit at the box office. Now Sudeep is waiting for the release of Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 3, directed by Prabhu Deva, and produced by Salman Khan and Arbaaz Khan under their respective banners of Salman Khan Films and Arbaaz Khan Productions.
