The Malayalam original, Lucifer starring Mohan Lal was a crazy project. It was a star-studded affair with many known, and upcoming faces played a role out of respect and love for Mohan Lal. In fact, the director itself is a superstar, Prithviraj Sukumaran. He also played a vital supporting part.
Remaking the same film without the starry attraction would definitely lessen the impact. It also has to be noted that the story is relatively weaker and the star-studded casting helps in taking care of it a great deal. Imagine the remake with no such frills. It (the subject) would be less appealing, on the power of content or lead star alone.
Megastar Chiranjeevi seems pretty much aware of the situation. It is the reason why we hear about the casting rumours now and then. The names like Khushbu, Roja, Jagapathi Babu etc. are thrown. The latest on the list is that of Vijay Deverakonda. However, none are locked barring Jagapathi Babu for the antagonist part, so far.
The idea is clear, get new-age stars or big names to fill the vital parts. Megastar could do that with his family heroes, but then that would give a wrong signal. So, when it comes to outside stars which A-lister is willing to be part of the movie remains the question. It is turning out to be an enormous headache for the unit and Megastar.
Sujith of Run Raja Run and Saaho fame helms the Lucifer remake. An official announcement regarding the other cast and crew is awaited.
