The Telugu version of Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy has registered a shockingly lower amount of TRPs than its Tamil version. Varun Tej's Gaddalakonda Ganesh has better viewership than megastar Chiranjeevi's film.
Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is an epic action film inspired by the life of Indian independence activist Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy from the Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh. Despite having huge hype, the Surender Reddy-directed movie, which was released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Kannada and Malayalam, failed to make the expected amount of collection at the worldwide box office.

The Chiranjeevi starrer registered 15 TRPs (11.045 million impressions) from its premiere on Sun TV in the first week of December 2019. Its Kannada version garnered 6.3 TRPs in its TV premiere and it is one of the highest numbers for a Kannada film.
