Unfortunately, 'Sye Raa' lacks any such advantage because Chiru has only kept gaining weight after the release of his 150th flick. He might have given up the workout regime and strict diet followed until then after gaining the acceptance of the people.
The oodles of weight gained by Chiranjeevi in the past two years certainly shows on his face. This is why posters & promos of 'Sye Raa' present Narasimha Reddy more like an over-weight/aged person rather than as super fit/handsome freedom fighter. A bit of care on the physique could have increased the overall appeal of magnum opus multi-fold. Let's only hope 'Sye Raa' doesn't get affected much by such drastic change from 'Khaidi No.150'!
