About Godfather Movie:

The Telugu remake of the 2019 Malayalam film Lucifer was announced in April 2020 with Chiranjeevi in the lead role.

Sujeeth was signed to direct the project, who had also started working on the script for the Telugu adaptation. Sujeeth opted out of the project in September 2020 due to creative differences. Later, V. V. Vinayak was approached in replace him.

In December 2020, Mohan Raja was confirmed as the director, marking his return to Telugu cinema after 20 years. Hanuman Junction (2001) was his first and only Telugu film until then.

The film was officially launched in January 2021 with a traditional pooja ceremony in Hyderabad.

The film’s title was unveiled as Godfather in August 2021.

Principal photography of the film began on 13 August 2021.

The first schedule of the film took place in Hyderabad. The second schedule of the film began in September 2021 in Ooty.

Shooting was halted in October as Chiranjeevi underwent surgery on his right hand which was followed by a 15-day bed rest. He resumed the shoot in November 2021 in Hyderabad.

In January 2022, the actor tested positive for COVID-19 and therefore had to quarantine himself. This proceeded to shoot a few crucial scenes that didn’t involve him during which Nayanthara joined the production.

Chiranjeevi joined the sets back in February following his recovery.

Salman Khan completed filming his portions in March 2022 in a week-long schedule at ND Studios, Karjat, Mumbai. Khan also shot for a song alongside Chiranjeevi in Hyderabad under the choreography of Prabhu Deva.

Godfather was released theatrically on 5 October 2022 and opened to positive reviews from critics.
