The makers of actor Chiranjeevi's highly anticipated project GodFather havereleased the teaser of the film ahead of the “Megastar's” 67th birthday. Making it the perfect birthday treat for all Chiranjeevi fans, the teaser – released in Telugu and Hindi – introduces a stellar cast in addition to the Chiranjeevi. Joining the legend in the political thriller are Salman Khan, Nayanthara and Satya Dev, among others. The film, which is an official remake of the Malayalam blockbuster Lucifer, introduces Chiranjeevi as “The boss of the bosses. Our one and only GodFather.” Knocking off two opponents at once and even using one of them as a makeshift chair are just some of the things that the Megastar pulls off with swag in the 1-minute 34 seconds teaser.
Joining Chiranjeevi in wielding guns and driving a jeep through a wall is Salman Khan, who will feature in an extended cameo and play “chote bhai (younger brother)” to the Megastar. In the teaser, Salman Khan's character even declares, “Lag raha hai badi lambi planning chal rahi hai. Apne is chote bhai ko bhool naa nahi. Kahe tho aajaathaa hoo mai.”
It was shared on Instagram by Chiranjeevi's son and RRR star Ram Charan who declared it the “teaser of the year.” He wrote, “And the teaser of the year is here. Loved every bit of it. Make way for Megastar Chiranjeevi Konidela.”
Tagging Salman Khan, Ram Charan added, “Salman Khan sir, you are just stunning.” The teaser also revealed that the film will release during Dussehra, October 5.

The 2019 Malayalam film, Lucifer, featured Mohanlal in the role that Chiranjeevi is reprising in GodFather. Lucifer also marked actor-producer Prithviraj's directorial debut as well as Vivek Oberoi's debut as an actor in Malayalam. Manju Warrier played the female lead in the film while Prithviraj appeared in an extended cameo, much like Salman Khan in the Telugu version.
GodFather has been directed by Mohan Raja and produced jointly by Konidela Production Company and Super Good Films. While the music for the film has been composed by Thaman S, the cinematography is by Nirav Shah.
