Director VV Vinayak has decided to leave the project of the Telugu remake of ‘Lucifer’. Vinayak has narrated his version of the script to Chiranjeevi twice, but the megastar continued seeking a better version.
Realizing that it would not materialize, Vinayak is taking up a new film. Vinayak is likely to direct the Hindi version of ‘Chatrapathi’ with Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas. The producers of this project have been scouting for a director. They had earlier approached Sujeeth. Now, Vinayak reportedly has given his nod.
Vinayak used to earn Rs 10 crore per film, but he lost all the money in chasing the dream of turning a hero and directing Chiranjeevi’s movie again. He has wasted three years. To make it up for the lost time, he is now toying with several ideas.
It was Vinayak who launched Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas as a hero in ‘Alludu Seenu’. Will he also take up the Bollywood launch vehicle of Bellamkonda? We have to wait and see.
Meanwhile, the buzz is that Tamil director Jayam Raja aka Mohan Raja may take up the Telugu remake of ‘Lucifer’
