Sai Dharam Tej's much-delayed movie "Rey" has cleared Censor Board formalities. The makers are gearing up to release the film as birth day gift to Mega power star Ram Charan, who turns 30 on 27 March.
Reports suggest that Censor Board officials watched "Rey" on 23 March and awarded 'A' certificate to the movie. They suggested 41 cuts that included deletion of some controversial dialogues, scenes and words. This has come as a big shock to the makers.
"Rey" is touted to be a romantic action entertainer. The runtime of the movie is said to be 168 minutes, which makes it lengthier than other regular Telugu films. Sai Dharma Tej, who is the hero, will be seen romancing two heroines, Saiyami Kher and Shraddha Das.
"Rey" has been written, directed and produced by YVS Chowdary under his banner Bommarillu Films. Launched on 17 October 2010, the movie was to mark the acting debut of Sai Dharma Tej. The shooting of the film was wrapped up on 6 August 2013 and it was expected to release in the same year. But the makers kept postponing it several times due to financial problems.
Besides direction, YVS Chowdary has also penned the story and screenplay along with Sridhar Seepana. Rajasimha has written the dialogues. "Rey" has late Chakri's music, Chandrabose's lyrics, Gunasekharan's cinematography, Ganesh and Stunt Shiva's actions, Raghu Kulkarni's art direction, Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao's editing and Raju Sundaram, Jani, Sekhar, Bhanodaya and Prem Rakshith's dance choreography.
After "Pilla Nuvvu Leni Jeevitam" that hit theatres on 14 November 2014, "Rey" will be Sai Dharam Tej's second film. His first release did good business at the box office and also got decent amount of fan following, which is expected to help "Rey" become a big money spinner at the box office.
