Ace cinematographer Ravi Varman was supposed to handle the camera for Megastar Chiranjeevi's prestigious project Sye Raa but the plan has been changed now.
The buzz is that Ravi Varman walked out of Sye Raa to work in Kamal Haasan's Indian 2, the sequel to the 'Bharateeyudu'. The makers have immediately roped in Rathnavelu as a replacement.
The shooting of Sye Raa is expected to begin in December. Rathnavelu is currently cranking the camera for Ram Charan’s Rangasthalam. Directed by Surendhar Reddy, Sye Raa has an ensemble of stars in the cast that includes Amitabh Bachchan, Sudeep, Nayanthara, Nasser, Pragya Jaiswal, and Vijay Sethupathi.
