Now he is starring in Acharya under the direction of Koratala Siva. Apart from it, he had signed to star in the remake of Malayalam hit Lucifer. The film will be directed by Sujeeth of Saaho fame. Sujeeth is making numerous changes in the script retaining the original flavor. He is including few additional characters to elevate the heroism of Chiranjeevi.
The original story has a powerful female character. Manju Warrier did the role in Malayalam. Inside talk is the makers are planning to rope in Lady Amitabh Vijayashanti for the role. Vijayashanti made her return to the silver screen and played a key role in Mahesh Babu's Sarileru Neekevvaru directed by Anil Ravipudi.
However Vijayashanti surprised all by saying she wouldn't do any more films after Sarileru Neekevvaru. Many say Vijayashanti got angry with the way the makers twisted her character after narrating it in a different manner when they met her. Now the question is will Vijayashanti give a green signal to share screen presence with Chiranjeevi with whom she starred in many blockbusters.
