#Lucifer Coming soon enough! 😊
Late director Rajesh Pillai and Murali Gopy are the brains behind Lucifer and they wanted to make this movie many years ago. However, due to various reasons, the movie failed to take off. Reports state that during the making of Tiyaan, Murali Gopy mentioned about this project to Prithviraj and he immediately decided to choose this as his maiden directorial venture. This project went on floors in July 2018 after a few final touches were added to the script!
