Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan had acquired the remake rights of ‘Lucifer’ right after its release. Since the orginal was a huge success and director Mohan Raja is known for successfully remaking several hit films, expectations for ‘Chiru 153’ are on the higher side. The Telugu version is expected to have a few changes from the original, which was directed by Prithviraj. Nayanthara is in talks to reprise Manju Warrier’s role from ‘Lucifer’.
More details are awaited.
