Rahman likely to reprise Vivek Oberoi’s role in Lucifer Telugu remake!
Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi will be starring in the Telugu remake of Malayalam blockbuster ‘Lucifer’. His son actor Ram Charan is producing the film and Sujeeth of ‘Saaho’ fame will be directing it. The makers are currently working on the pre-production which includes finalizing the cast. They are planning to start shooting by the end of this year.
It is being reported that Rahman has been approached to play the antagonist in the film. He is likely to reprise the character essayed by Vivek Oberoi in the original. Though the makers had approached Oberoi himself to reprise the character, he was not very keen to play the same part again. In ‘Lucifer’, he played the role of Bobby, a sophisticated and manipulative businessman. Powered by actor Vineeth’s perfect dubbing and measured performance, Oberoi did total justice to his casting. It will be interesting to see how Rahman essays the same role.
Telugu medias are also reporting that Suhasini Mani Ratnam will be reprising the role played by Manju Warrier in ‘Lucifer’. Several other rumours about the cast members are doing the rounds but an official announcement is yet to be made.
