Pic: A heavily bearded Amitabh Bachchan for Sye Raa

Amitabh Bachchan is currently in Hyderabad to shoot for superstar Chiranjeevi’s magnum opus, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.

Big B took to his blog to share a glimpse of his look test for the biopic on the late freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. 

"Dear friend Chiranjeevi, that majestic superstar and icon from the world of Andhra and Telugu cinema, requests for a guest appearance in his magnum opus, on a most valiant period character that he portrays, and I agree," Big B posted on his blog.

Along with it, he shared a photograph in which he is seen sporting a heavily white bearded look. “These are not the final, but close,’ he added.

Further, in the blog, Bachchan also talks about how he is almost always approached to play an elder man.

He clarifies that saying he also can’t help it because his younger days are long gone.

“Cannot really deny their choice… The days of yore are over… I mean they could never be reborn as this,” posted Amitabh in his blog.

"The transformation of the subject from the bright and excited to the sombre and grim is the greatest anathema of movie making. I do swear and promise myself that ‘never again' shall I ever indulge in sticking wigs and hair for a film... But eventually get caught in projects that demand just that.

So...alright for the sake of creative excellence and necessity, I submit," added the actor, who will next be seen playing a 102-year-old man in 102 Not Out.

The star cast of this biopic includes Amitabh Bachchan, Vijay Sethupathi, Jagapathi Babu, Sudeep, Nayanthara, Pragya Jaiswal and Brahmaji.

Produced by Ram Charan under his banner Konidela Production Company on a budget of Rs 150 crore, the film will be released in multiple languages, including Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Hindi.
