It is known to our readers that Ram Charan purchased the Telugu Remake Rights of Malayalam Blockbuster Lucifer, starring Mohanlal. Chiranjeevi wanted to have Sukumar as the director for this Remake, but the director is not showing interest in doing a remake now. However, he agreed to pen the script for Chiranjeevi.
Sources say that Chiranjeevi locked Vamshi Paidipalli for this Project. Vamshi previously handled Oopiri superbly, which is also a Remake Project. And so, Chiranjeevi gave him a chance. This Project will come as a Lifeline for Vamshi, who just lost a chance to direct Mahesh Babu. The movie is likely to go on floors in October. Chiranjeevi will finish his Acharya with Koratala Siva by then. The film is being readied for August 14th as Independence Day Special.
