Sye Raa hit the screens yesterday to overwhelming response from critics and audience alike. The film has collected a share of Rs 38.73 Cr in Telugu States and 53.88 Cr worldwide on day one. As per trade reports, the film is holding well on day two and it is expected to rake massive numbers in coming days.
Sye Raa thanks meet has been held today and entire film unit took part in it. Chiru who is elated with the response has thanked his film unit and also the audience. He informed that, Surender Reddy did full justice to the script penned by Paruchuri brothers.
Chiranjeevi revealed the remuneration Amitabh Bachchan and Anushka charged for the film. “Surender Reddy felt that Big B Amitabh Bachchan would suit for the role of Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy's guru Gosai Venkanna. The moment we asked Amitabh ji, he immediately gave his nod. He did not even take a single penny as remuneration and in fact spent all his flight, boarding and lodging charges.
Like Amitabh Ji, Anushka also did not expect anything in return. She was like, it’s Chiranjeevi garu’s film, Charan is asking, so even a small role, I’ll do it. She heartily came all the way from USA and shot for Sye Raa. We really thank her for the same,” said Chiru.
