Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi has a lot riding on his next release Godfather. His last film Acharya where he co-starred with his son Ram Charan, bombed miserably. For Godfather , Chiranjeevi has teamed up with his old friend Salman Khan to ensure a pan-India audience.
What was supposed to be a guest appearance, then an “extended cameo” for Salman, is now a full-fledged starring role in Godfather.
A reliable source from Hyderabad informs that Salman’s role was extended as per the need of the hour. “Salman had a dance with Chiranjeevi Sir, and a few dialogues. Now he is playing a full-fledged role in Godfather. If you have seen the Malayalam original film Lucifer on which Godfather is based, then Salman plays the role that Prithviraj played in the original.”
Mohanlal played the role that Chiranjeevi plays in the remake. Salman is not only partnering with Chiranjeevi on screen he will also be the film’s presenter in the Hindi belt.
