Coming to the professional front, the Tollywood veteran is currently riding high on the success of his period film ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’.

Made on a massive scale, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy features an ensemble star cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Kiccha Sudeep, and Jagapathi Babu among others.
The film has taken the box office by storm, since its release on 2 October. Trade reports suggest that the film’s worldwide collections mounted up to Rs 230 crore, by its twelfth day.
