It's needless to say that Tollywood Megastar Chiranjeevi and lady superstar Vijaya Shanti were the most successful onscreen pair. They worked together in 19 films and stepped into politics later. While Chiru is completely away from politics, Vijaya Shanti is continuing her political career in Congress party. Clarifying that she will continue to be in politics, Vijaya Shanti said she will act only if a good role comes her way. It is known that her comeback movie in 2020, Sarileru Neekevvaru, was a massive hit at box-office.
After Aacharya, Chiranjeevi will be part of Lucifer remake and Saaho fame Sujith Sign is expected to direct this project. The young filmmaker is currently working on all possible changes and enhancements to make it suitable for Telugu nativity. As per Film Nagar reports, the director is considering Vijaya Shanti as Chiru's sister role in the film. It was played by Manju Warrior in Malayalam. Having acted as a leading lady opposite Chiranjeevi in 19 movies, will Vijaya Shanti agree to play his sister role now?
In the original version, the role played by Manju Warrior is quite typical as she hates her brother and gets married to a baddie. Also, there are several other dimensions to her role. If Vijaya Shanti gives a nod, it surely is going to bring high importance and weightage to her character. Given that it's a political backdrop story, it remains to be seen if Ramulamma gives a yes or no!
