Music maestro AR Rahman, who had performed in Hyderabad last week has reportedly opted out of actor Chiranjeevi's 'Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy', a biopic on Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, a leader known for his rebellion against the British in 1846. He cited lack of time and an array of committed projects for the refusal.
“Chiranjeevi is a fantastic actor and I have great respect for him. It's a beautiful film and has a great story to tell. But I have other projects and my life is all over the place. It's a beautiful film and has a great story to tell. But I have other projects and my life is all over the place. I am also promoting my film. Sometimes I have to be practical about how much I can take up!” Rahman said. The biopic will also feature stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Kiccha Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara, and others. Rahman is currently composing for Mani Ratnam's next film. He, along with Vairamuthu and Mani Ratnam will have a five-day jamming session in Goa for the big-budget multi-starrer.
