Megastar Chiranjeevi's niece Niharika Konidela is the latest addition to the ensemble cast of his next movie Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. Producer Ram Charan roped her in for an important role in the film.

The rumours about Niharika Konidela joining the cast of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy have been doing the rounds in the air for quite some time now. The latest we hear is that the daughter of Nagababu will be seen playing a Kathakali dancer, which is said to be an important role in Chiranjeevis' 151st movie.

It is reported that Niharika Konidela's role will have a screen space of 10 minutes but it is very important for Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. The actress is currently taking up the special training for the role. She is very excited as she got the opportunity to share screen space with in her uncle, megastar Chiranjeevi.

Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is a period film that is based on the life of the freedom fighter from Rayalaseema, Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy. The movie is being shot simultaneously in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam and mega power star Ram Charan is bankrolling it under the banner Konidela Production Company

Directed by Surender Reddy, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy features versatile actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Nayanthara, Jagapati Babu, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi, Tamannaah, and Brahmaji in the important roles. Niharika Konidela, who is the youngest one among them, will get to learn more from them, but also get more attention, as the film is released on a grand scale.

Niharika Konidela is the first female member from the mega family to choose acting as a career. She made her debut with Oka Manasu in 2016 and she forayed into Tamil with Oru Nalla Naal Paathu Solren earlier this year. She was last seen in Happy Wedding. But, all the three movies have bombed at the box office.
