The title of Megastar Chiranjeevi’s 153rd film is Godfather and the film will be directed by hit Tamil director Mohan Raja. The title was announced along with a motion poster today. Chiranjeevi’s most recent film was Sye Ra Narasimha Reddy, which released two years ago. Read the film’s review here.
It is said to be the official remake of Mohanlal’s Lucifer, which was directed by Prithviraj. The film went on to become the biggest hit of the industry and it was deemed to become a perfect remake that will suit the Telugu audiences.

It is being produced jointly by Chiranjeevi’s Konidela Productions and Super Good Films. Interestingly, Godfather has been the title of superhit films in both Malayalam and Tamil too.
