The music of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is composed by Amit Trivedi, while the lyrics have been written by Seetharama Sastry. R Rathnavelu is the cinematographer, and the editing is by A Sreekar Prasad, according to IMDb.
The film has reportedly been made under a huge budget of Rs 150 crore. India Today mentions the VFX alone cost Rs 45 crore, and nearly 17 studios across the world have worked on the visual effects. Ram Charan, Chiranjeevi's son, has bankrolled the project through Konidela Production Company. It is his second collaboration with Chiranjeevi after Khaidi No 150 in 2017.
Ram had told Firstpost he wanted to finance Sye Raa Narasimha Reddyto fulfill his father's lifelong dream. "Once my dad told me, ‘You sported the warrior costume in your second film (Magadheera). But I’ve completed 150 films but didn’t get an opportunity to play such a character in my life.' He actually envied my role in Magadheera and from that day, I wanted to produce a film like Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy to fulfill his dream."
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy will open on 2 October, and will be distributed in Hindi by AA Films, and Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment. It has also been dubbed in Kannada, Malayalam, and Tamil.
