Megastar Chiranjeevi has been on a signing spree. He recently took his new project Godfather, the Telugu remake of Malayalam blockbuster Lucifer onto the floors. Chiru will soon be leaving to Ooty for the forthcoming schedule of Godfather and related backend works are underway already. The coming schedule of Godfather is likely to commence by the end of this week. As we had reported earlier, several rural backdrop sequences that form the crux of Godfather will be shot in this Ooty schedule. The lead cast and the principal crew will be taking part in this crucial schedule. It is heard that the majority of the shoot will be wrapped up with this schedule.

Coming to the topic, creative filmmaker Gukasekhar is now planning to direct Chiranjeevi fone his upcoming project. The senior director is currently busy with Samantha Shakuntalam. Once he is done with the post production of the Samantha starrer, he will start working on the project with Chiranjeevi.

Gunasekhar and Chiranjeevi had previously joined forces for Chudalani Undi and Mruga Raju. While Chudalani Undi was a musical blockbuster, Mruga Raju was a dud at the box office. Now, Gunasekhar is determined to deliver a blockbuster to Chiranjeevi. He has even prepared a storyline for Chiranjeevi and will be narrating the same to the latter very soon. If Chiranjeevi likes the idea, this project might actually materialize. The final call regarding the project will be taken by Chiranjeevi in the next few months.

The mega hero is currently focused on his ongoing projects, which include Godfather, Bhola Shankar, and a mass entertainer with Bobby. Chiranjeevi will have to wrap up all these projects before he takes up the project with Gunasekhar. Nevertheless, he is indeed interested in working with the latter. Everything depends on the story Gunasekhar has developed for Chiranjeevi. If he manages to impress the senior hero, with his story, the project might materialize. Else, it will be put on the backburner.

As for Gunasehar, he has also lined up a project with Rana. He says this film is a mythological epic and it will be depend on the mythological character Hirankyakashyapa.
