Lucifer, directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran has become a very big hit at the box-office. Mohanlal played the lead role in the movie. Chiranjeevi liked the movie and grabbed the remake rights of the film. Initially, Sujeeth is on board to direct the film but he was later replaced with VV Vinayak. The reports in the media reveal that Chiranjeevi is not completely happy with the work of VV Vinayak for the changes in the film's script. The reports reveal that there is a change of director and Mohan Raja who made Thani Oruvan in Tamil, is in consideration for the film.
Ram Charan remade Thani Oruvan in Telugu as Dhruva. Ever since the film happened, Mohan Raja is closely associated with the Mega family. Chiranjeevi is considering Mohan Raja to direct the Telugu version of the movie now. The talks are going on but nothing is confirmed yet.
The film's shoot will begin only after Chiranjeevi wraps up the film Acharya. The complete details of the movie will come out soon.
