Mega Star Chiranjeevi has acquired the remake rights of Mohanlal's Malayalam political thriller Lucifer. Tamil director Mohan Raja came on board to direct the remake. The casting of the film is underway, and makers recently approached Bollywood noted filmmaker Anurag Kashyap to play the villain in the remake. However, Anurag straight away rejected the offer. Now, makers are on a lookout for another actor who can lock horns with Chiru and impress the audience with his powerful screen presence. The film will roll after Chiru wrapped his ongoing project Acharya with Koratala Siva.
