Nayanthara joins Lucifer Telugu remake
The film will be launched on January 21 in Hyderabad and the principal photography will commence in March
Nayanthara has joined the cast of Chiranjeevi's Telugu remake of the Malayalam action entertainer Lucifer. She will be seen in an important role in the film being directed by Mohan Raja.
"After considering the likes of Suhasini, Vijayashanti, Genelia, Khushbu, Ramya Krishnan and Nadiya, the makers have finalised Nayanthara to play Chiranjeevi's sister in the film. Both Chiru and Mohan felt that an actor of Nayanthara's stature would be the ideal choice to pull off this demanding role portrayed by Manju Warrier in the original. While Nayanthara has agreed to be on board, she is yet to sign on the dotted line," informs a source close to the team.
The film will be launched on January 21 in Hyderabad and the principal photography will commence in March. Produced by NV Prasad in association with Ram Charan's Konidela Productions, the film also has Satya Dev Kancharana stepping into the shoes of Tovino Thomas.
