Lucifer remake: Salman Khan and Chiranjeevi dance together in Godfather
‘Godfather’, the Telugu remake of Mohanlal’s Godfather is nearing its final stages of shoot. Starring Chiranjeevi in the lead, the film is directed by Mohan Raja. Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is playing a cameo role, which was done by Prithviraj in the original. The Telugu version has been tweaked to a certain extent to make it appealing to the native audience. As part of it, the makers recently shot a song sequence featuring Chiranjeevi and Salman. Prabhudheva choreographed the song, which is expected to be featured in the post-credits portions. Thaman, who recently won a National award, is composing music for the film.
