A fire broke out in the Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi’s farmhouse on the outskirts of Hyderabad on Friday, damaging a part of the film set, police said.
The accident occurred near the Ganipet lake. Residents of the area on noticing the smoke at the farmhouse alerted the police.
At the time of the fire, no one was at the sets of the film Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. The damage was borne by the set, a part of which was burnt.
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is an upcoming Telugu historical war film directed by Surender Reddy and produced by Ram Charan on Konidela Production Company banner.
The story of the film is based on the life of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy from Rayalaseema. The film stars Chiranjeevi, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi, Jagapati Babu, Nayanthara, Tamannaah, and Brahmaji.
Amitabh Bachchan is also said to have a cameo in the film.
The film is set 30 years prior to the 1857 revolt, the first war of Independence against the British.
AR Rahman was initially signed to compose the music for the film but later opted out due to date issues. Amit Trivedi was later roped in for the music.
The film is slated to release in October this year.
