Looks like, things are not going right for the makers of Amitabh Bachchan and Chiranjeevi starrer Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy as mishaps are often happening on-the-sets of the film. After the sets caught fire, the film’s set witnessed a tragic death, recently.
This unfortunate incident took place when a man named Alexander, who worked as an extra in Chiranjeevi’s film Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy was found unconscious near a DLF building in Hyderabad on Tuesday. He was soon rushed to hospital, but he succumbed to a heatstroke, the same evening.
Reportedly, the Russian man had come to Hyderabad to work with the Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy team for the role of a British man in the film. A report in TOI states, “The Russian was identified as Alexander by cops. The man didn’t have any passport or documents on him, but the camera that he carried had photos of the film set. Inquiries with the film crew revealed that he had a Russian friend, Borez, in Goa who confirmed his identity. Alexander had arrived in India in April on tourist visa and stayed with his friend in Goa. From there he had gone to Mumbai where he was picked by film agents who sent him to Hyderabad to be an extra in Chiranjeevi movie."
Talking about the film, it is based on the life of freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy who revolted against British East India Company in Rayalaseema area of Andhra Pradesh 10 years before the 1857 mutiny. Alexander was acting as one of the Britishers.Earlier this month, the film was in news for another unfortunate accident as the Amitabh Bachchan starrer’s set, which was erected in Kokapet, caught fire. Police had then said, “There was nobody on the sets of the film Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy at the time of the accident. A part of it was damaged in the fire.”
