A massive fire broke out on the sets of Megastar Chiranjeevi's upcoming historical war drama Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy today morning, destroying around three-crore worth set property. No casualty has been reported till now.

 A huge set resembling a historic fort was erected by the makers at Chiranjeevi's farmhouse, Kokapet a few months ago. The film's shooting went till late evening on Thursday. The fire accident has forced Bollywood Megastar Amitabh Bachchan to cancel his shooting today in the city.

According to preliminary reports, a short-circuit on the set could have triggered the fire at around 5 am, which quickly spread across the entire property. Seeing the smoke, the locals have alerted the cops who sprung into action with three fire tenders to douse the flames. But, by the time they reached, the flames had engulfed the entire set.

This is the second time Sye Raa's film set has caught fire, as a similar mishap damaging over Rs 2 crore set property took place on the sets at Annapurna Studios in November 2017. The incident is a huge setback to the team as it will take at least two months to resume the proceedings.

Directed by Surender Reddy, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy shows Chiranjeevi reprising the role of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, while Nayanthara plays his wife, Siddhamma. The film also features Kichcha Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi, Jagapathi Babu and Tamannah Bhatia in supporting roles. The production has been underway for two years and the makers have planned to release the film in Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi for Dasara. The film produced by Ram Charan under Konidela Productions has music by Bollywood composer Amit Trivedi.
