It had an overwhelming response from fans and the movie has now become one of the biggest grosser ever, in Mollywood. Recently, while talking about Lucifer, Prithviraj revealed a few previously unknown details about the movie.
Prithviraj said, "Lucifer's producers and I realised that with such a high budget and the buzz surrounding Mohanlal, the movie would definitely have good business. We wanted to make the most use of all of this and thus ended up ensuring that we got a super hit. Also, Lucifer would be one of the first movies to collect more through Digital rights than Satellite rights!" Reports also state that for the first time ever, the overseas rights of Lucifer were not sold for an outright amount but were given through a distribution deal.
