Reports have been doing rounds since a very long time that lady superstar Nayanthara would be reprising the role of Manju Warrier in the Telugu remake of Lucifer. Contrary to the media reports, it is learnt that director Mohan Raja has re-worked on the script and now the Telugu version will have new flashback episodes where Chiranjeevi will have a romantic story. To bring the best for the Telugu audience and also to connect with the legion of megastar fans, the makers have made some changes to bring in ‘love angle’ in the political thriller. 

To make Nayanthara's role a bit significant in the flashback episodes, the makers have re-worked on the script. The shooting of the film will commence from August after Chiranjeevi wraps up Siva Koratala's Acharya. This is for the second time Nayanthara will be seen alongside Chiranjeevi in a romantic role. Even in Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, Chiranjeevi had two romantic leads-Nayanthara and Tamnnaah Bhatia. 

Apparently, Chiranjeevi was unhappy with the 'corrections' made by directors like Sujeeth and V V Vinayak in the Lucifer remake and so, he brought Tamil director Mohan Raja to helm the much-awaited project. Although he liked the original content, he wanted to make a lot of changes to make it mass-centric filled with love, emotion and action in the right measure. 

Nayanthara has always been selective about her work in Telugu films. Probably, she liked the ‘well-etched role in ‘Lucifer’ remake to say ‘yes’ to Telugu move once again.
