Much to anyone’s surprise, Megastar Chiranjeevi always picks directors who are not delivering super hits and makes them deliver a hit for him. Whether it is picking K Raghavendra Rao during Jagadekaveerudu time or VV Vinayak for Khaidi No 150, Chiru never missed delivering a punch. Similarly, he has now picked Saaho director Sujith Reddy for his next flick.
No doubt it is a shocker for many as Chiranjeevi picked Sujith even after the fact that Saaho has become a startling flop at the box office. The matinee idol might have got stunned by the stylish way Sujith conceives scenes and might have found him pretty apt to direct Lucifer movie remake. But then, he’s said to have given full freedom to the director to re-work on many scenes.
Utilising the freedom given by Chiranjeevi, even Sujith is said to be penning some new elevation scenes. At the same time, he is said to be strengthening the brother-sister bonding that is bit simple in the original. As the whole of the film’s plot depends on the hook, they are now giving some more dimension to this.
The only thing to be seen is, if Chiranjeevi will accept these changes after Sujith gives a final narration.
