During the talk at Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, Ram Charan spoke extensively about his film choices, remakes and his upcoming projects. He spoke about 'Godfather' which he co-produced with NV Prasad.

He said, "I've recently released a movie, Godfather. It's a remake of Mohanlal's Lucifer. The film was widely watched on OTT. It did about Rs 145 crore to Rs 150 crore. Yes, we will lose a big chunk of the audience who have already seen the original film on OTT. The audiences might not want to come to theatres to watch the remake. Maybe the charisma of the star, star power would also have dragged the people back to theatres even though they have seen. But will that formula always work? I'd say no. I don't know if I'd continue doing a lot of remakes."

He further added, "If I do a remake, I'd probably ask the producer of the original to not release it on OTT. On those conditions, I may do a remake. If I've seen a movie in theatres and if I like it, I might request him not release on OTT.  Maybe I'll be interested. Otherwise, going forward, we'd all prefer to do original scripts.”

While many people are agreeing with Charan's thoughts, it looks like the star hero understood this after the movie's release. Because it was Chiranjeevi who said that Ram Charan insisted him to watch 'Lucifer' and bought the remake rights as he felt that it would be suitable for his dad's image. While it is great to hear that Charan got an idea of how remakes are slowly fading away, his dad Chiru is currently working on another remake. He is acting in 'Bholaa Shankar' and it is the remake of Ajith's super hit 2015 film 'Vedhalam'.
