Varmaa, the Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy which marks the debut of actor Vikram’s son Dhruv, has been rechristened as Adhithya Varma. A fresh look poster of the movie was released online.
The film will be directed by Gireesaaya, former associate of Arjun Reddy director Sandeep Vanga.
The new version will also feature Banita Sandhu, who will play the female lead and Priya Anand will also have a crucial role in the film.
Cinematographer Ravi K Chandran has been roped in to crank the camera while Radhan will compose music. The announcement comes a week after the makers said that they have decided to scrap the version of the remake directed by Bala.
The remake was announced last year with National Award-winning filmmaker Bala roped in to direct the project. According to an official statement released by the makers, “E4 Entertainment has engaged B studios to recreate the Tamil version of Arjun Reddy titled as Varmaa, on a first copy basis, on the latter’s insistence. We at E4 Entertainment are not happy with the final version handed over to us and due to various creative and other differences; we have decided not to release this version.”
