Megastar Chiranjeevi's return to the world of cinema has not been as rosy as expected, at least so far. While his 2017 film Khaidi No. 150 reaped great rewards at the box office, the following two films - Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Acharya - have been particularly underwhelming with the latter ending up as a major commercial failure. And it would seem that the same dismal performance is also jeopardizing his future prospects as his upcoming film God Father now finds itself on thin ice.
Yes, as per the latest reports, the makers of God Father are yet to find buyers or distributors for a theatrical release. The teaser of God Father was released a couple of weeks ago and although the public response has been quite favourable, the fact that the film has not found any takers so far is quite baffling. The same teaser also included a glimpse of Salman Khan's grand cameo but in spite of all the frills, the distributors haven't been enticed.
Reportedly, the producers of God Father have quoted a price of Rs. 85 crores for the distribution rights of the film which is scheduled to release on October 5, 2022. With the release only days away, one could only imagine the plight of the producers at the moment.
God Father is the official remake of the 2019 Malayalam mass entertainer Lucifer, starring Mohanlal in the lead and Prithviraj Sukumaran making his directorial debut. Centred on the world of politics, Lucifer followed the tussle for the chief minister's throne which brings a mysterious man Stephen to the fore, making him the most vital cog of the wheel. The film was a major commercial success at the time of its release and has even warranted a sequel, which has been titled L2: Empuraan.
God Father, the Telugu version, has been directed by Mohan Raja with Ram Charan, R.B Choudary, and N.V Prasad serving as the producers. Nirav Shah is the film's cinematographer and Thaman S. is the music composer.
