Saaho fame Sujeeth Sign and VV Vinayak have previously worked on Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Lucifer Remake Script. But they could not satisfy the Megastar and finally, Chiranjeevi voted for Tamil Director, Mohan Raja. The movie was launched recently and it will go on floors in February.
It is said that Mohan Raja had a different hit with all commercial elements. He intelligently blended it with the script of Lucifer which make it commercially viable. That has impressed Chiranjeevi and he instantly gave his nod. Mohan Raja is known to be a remake specialist. He previously remade five Telugu films in Tamil.
Reports are that the director is looking to cast Nayantara in the role of Manju Warrier of the Original. Nayantara previously was seen alongside Chiranjeevi in Sye Raa. The team is also in the hunt for two more male stars – to play a young CM’s role, and for an admirer of Chiranjeevi.Follow @THEPANIPURI
