Last year Sandeep Reddy Vanga had directed a Telugu film titled Arjun Reddy which had Vijay Devarakonda and Shalini Pandey in the lead roles. This film was a great hit. Now, this film is being remade in Tamil with the title Varma. Vikram’s son Dhruv is debuting as the hero through this film.
Bala is directing the film. Raju Murugan who directed films such as Cuckoo and Joker is penning the dialogues for this film. The shooting of the film began in Kathmandu on 2nd March. This schedule has been successfully completed. A few days back there was news that Gauthami’s daughter Subbulakhsmi will don the role which Shalini Pandey essayed in the original version.
Now Gouthami has mentioned that her daughter Subbulakhsmi is not acting in Varma. Now the crew is yet to zero on the heroine. E 4 Entertainments is producing the film. Arjun Reddy is lightly based on the epic story Devadas. It has also been announced that the film is to be remade in Hindi also.
