Can Chiranjeevi Beat Prabhas This time?

Chiranjeevi, who is riding high with the success of his comeback flick 'Khaidi No 150', is all set to kick start his 151th Movie. This film, which is based on the story of a freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, shooting is about to begin shortly. The film unit is busy recreating the 19th century village set with Rayalaseema background in Hyderabad outskirts.

Ram Charan, who is producing the movie under his Konidela productions banner, had already given instructions to his team that they should cross the high benchmarks set by Baahubali with this film. Charan feels that it is apt to invest hugely in this historical period drama, as he is certain that this film can draw a huge amount of audience to the theaters. In addition, fans who go used to grandeur of Baahubali will not accept any inferior product from mega compound.

Since historical period drama have universal appeal, the unit are looking to hire actors from various industries to increase the craze of the movie in the respective languages. As the part of that strategy, they had approached Aishwarya Rai to play a female lead in this movie. She is yet to sign on the dotted line. However, the most pertinent question in the minds of mega fans is that, can Chiranjeevi beat the records set by Prabhas with this movie and does Surender Reddy has the skill to make this story into epic one?
