Tamannaah, who has been working round the clock on the Telugu remake of Queen, said in a statement: "It's a great honour to be sharing the screen space with two of my favourite actors — Chiranjeevi and Amitabh Bachchan. Biopics have always been a priority for me and since the film revolves around a freedom fighter. It's a matter of national pride to contribute to this project. I will be undertaking a lot of research for my role as there is very few material available online and I want to keep this as real as possible," she added.

With this, the actress also joins a niche club of working with the father-son duo as she earlier worked with Ram Charan, but this will be the first time she will be working with Chiranjeevi.

Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is said to be a trilingual film which will be released in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi.

The magnum opus is being directed by Surender Reddy and produced by Ram Charan under his banner Konidela Production Company. It is likely to hit the screens later in 2018.
