Megastar Chiranjeevi has been criticised many times in recent years for choosing to do remakes over straight films. The actor was especially heavily criticised for deciding to make his comeback with the remake of a Tamil movie, instead of opting to do a straight one.
Chiru has featured in two straight films since then, Sye Raa and Acharya. While Sye Raa managed to entertain the audience, Acharya, which was released this year, turned out to be a disaster. In a recent press meet, Chiru spoke about his decision behind doing remakes, saying that he’s been going remakes throughout his career. He said that every remake he has ever done, has always fetched good revenue, and thay audiences love it. Moreover, he said that it’s because he wants to bring the best of entertainment to the Telugu audience.
On the other hand, his film Godfather, which is a remake of the Malayalam film Lucifer, is all set to be released on October 5th, on the occassion of Dasara. The movie is directed by Mohan Raja, and features an ensemble cast that includes Nayantara, Satya Dev and Salman Khan.
