Megastar Chiranjeevi has earlier announced that #Chiru153 is going to be Telugu remake of Malayalam’s blockbuster political drama ‘Lucifer’ and his home production has purchased the remake rights.The original film was directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran and written by Murali Gopy that had Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal in the lead role.
Until recently, there have been several speculations on the director who will be directing this Telugu remake.There were names including Sukumar, VV.Vinayak, KS.Ravindra (Bobby) and even Meher Ramesh are heard in this connection.And now Chiranjeevi himself has put an end to all the rumors on this topic.
Recently during the media interaction, Chiru revealed that ‘Sahoo’ director Sujeeth will direct this prestigious remake.He also went on to say that he had asked Sujeeth to pen the Telugu script and make sure it matches the sensibilities of the Telugu audiences.In fact, Sujeeth did not have great offers in hand after ‘Sahoo’ failed to click in the Telugu market.
Konidela Production Company will produce the remake which will be completed in quick schedules and will be made on a strict budget.An official announcement regarding this remake and the director is expected to come out soon once the lockdown ends.
Let’s hope that Sujeeth makes complete use of this opportunity and comes back to the limelight.
