Megastar Chiranjeevi is currently shooting for the film Acharya. After wrapping it up, he will be doing the Telugu remake of Lucifer under the direction of Sujeeth of Saaho fame. If the latest grapevine is anything to go by, the makers of this film are planning to rope in Rowdy Star Vijay Deverakonda to play a key role in this movie.
According to the sources, Vijay is being considered for the role played by Tovino Thomas in the original. This character plays a crucial role in the film's proceedings. The makers of the Telugu version felt that it will be better to sign a star hero for this character. At first, they thought of signing Ram Charan. But Charan is already acting in Acharya. Thus, they wanted to bring a fresh combination on the table. That is how Vijay's name came forward. Currently, the talks are going on with the Arjun Reddy actor. If he gives his nod, then Lucifer will become a huge multi-starrer project. Lucifer Telugu remake will get bankrolled by Ram Charan under his banner Konidela Production Company.
Currently, Vijay Deverakonda is acting in an untitled project that is being directed by Puri Jagannath. Bollywood actress Ananya Pandey is playing the female lead in it. The film is being bankrolled jointly by Puri Jagannath, Karan Johar, and Charmme Kaur. It will have a pan-Indian release in the languages Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, and Hindi.
