The shooting for Megastar Chiranjeevi’s upcoming film, Godfather, under the direction of Tamil director Mohan Raja is in its last leg. The film is an official remake of the 2019 Malayalam political drama Lucifer. As per the early reports, Godfather is aiming for a Dussehra festival release.
Akkineni Varasudu, Akhil, also is eyeing to entertain the audience with the stylish spy thriller, Agent on Dussehra. Directed by Surender Reddy, the film also has Malayalam star Mammootty in a key role. As per the trade reports, the film is hot among the audience and also among the distributors. Even without a teaser, the business of the film is going at a great pace due to the hype.
The same hype is missing in the case of Chiru’s Godfather, as the original Malayalam movie has been watched by almost everyone on the OTT platform. The remake factor, not-so-popular director, and the recent disastrous fate of Acharya have turned Godfather into a very dull project.
People on social media are saying that it would be embarrassing for Megastar if a young hero who doesn’t have any major hits to his credit will dominate Chiranjeevi this Dussehra season.
