Lucifer was a super hit movie in Malayalam. The film was produced by Antony Perumbavoor and starred Mohanlal in the lead role. This is Prithviraj’s first directorial venture. The Telugu version of the film is now in the pipeline. The character played by Mohanlal is played by Chiranjeevi. The film is titled The Godfather. The film is directed by Mohan Raja.
The film has a large cast. The film is also being produced by Chiranjeevi himself. When he saw Lucifer, it was Chiranjeevi who wanted to remake it in Telugu. Syed Masood plays an important role in the film. Prithviraj played this character in Malayalam. The character comes to the screen in just 5 minutes. But it’s just that the viewer never experiences it. Because this character is coming at a critical juncture. Therefore, the truth is that it feels like a full-fledged character in the film.
Chiranjeevi invited Salman Khan to play the role. But Salman Khan turned down the role. It is not clear why Salman Khan turned down the role. I think it’s probably because of the limited screen space. Or maybe he has some dating issues. In any case, if Salman Khan had come, the film would have been well received in Hindi as well. With Salman Khan rejecting the role, there is no doubt that he will be replaced by a superstar.
The character played by Vivek Oberoi in the film is played in Telugu by Rahman, the favorite of the Malayalees. Meanwhile, there are indications that the character played by Sania Iyyappan will be played by a Malayalee actress in Telugu. There are indications that Anikha Surendran will play the lead role. Anyway the filming of the movie is progressing fast. The film is expected to hit theaters next year.
