Chiranjeevi had been wanting to do Uyyalawada movie for a long time now. In fact, it has been his dream project.
Though the megastar has been planning to do this film for nearly a decade, it is happening now.
While one is not sure of the scale in the past, now the film has a benchmark in Baahubali.
The film will be made on a grand scale and world-class technicians and artistes are being roped in to make it international.
The film's director Surender Reddy had never handled such a large production, but it is expected that he will carry it through.
The film is likely to cost Rs 200 crore. But given the crew, technicians and the elaborate visual effects being planned, it is likely to increase further.
After Baahubali, Uyyalawada is expected to set a new benchmark in Indian cinema.
