Megastar Chiranjeevi is delighted to watch Mohanlal in the film Lucifer, directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran. He immediately picked up the remake rights to play the lead role in Telugu. Sujeeth was initially considered as the director for the project, but VV Vinayak later came into consideration. We are the first to report to the readers that Tamil filmmaker Mohan Raja replaced Vinayak as the movie director. Now, we have another exclusive update regarding the film’s title. We learned from our sources that the film would be titled ‘Byreddy.’
In the original version, Mohanlal plays a character that has two names. Mohanlal played Stephen Gattupally and Ab Ram Khureshi. Now, Chiranjeevi will turn Byreddy for the film. The reports state that Chiranjeevi will play a powerful politician in the Rayalaseema region. In the background, he will also be seen as a Mafia leader. The film’s title plays a key role in the film, and Chiranjeevi is particular about having a powerful title.
Mohan Raja, who directed Hanuman Junction, and Thani Oruvan will direct this prestigious project. The film’s pre-production work is currently in progress. The film’s shoot will begin once Chiranjeevi wraps up the film ‘Acharya.’
