Adithya Varma, the Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy starring Dhruv Vikram in the titular role, has been finally wrapped up after 50 days of non-stop shooting, its makers have revealed. The film, which has been directed by Girisayya, marks the acting debut of popular actor Vikram’s son Dhruv.
The remake was originally announced and even shot with director Bala. The project was titled Varma; however, it was later scrapped after the makers were unhappy with the final output. In a statement, Bala had revealed that it was his decision to leave the project and denied allegations made by the producers.
“I am forced to release this explanation, due to the false statement from the producer of Varmaa. In order to safeguard creative freedom, it was my own decision to relieve myself from the project. Considering Dhruv Vikram’s future, I would like to end this here,” he said.
E4 Entertainment, the makers of the film, shot the film from scratch with debut director Girisayya, who had assisted filmmaker Sandeep Reddy Vanga on Arjun Reddy. The film, which has music by Radhan, was rechristened as Adithya Varmaa and it also stars October fame Banita Sandhu and Priya Anand in crucial roles. The project marks Banita’s Tamil debut.
According to the industry grapevine, Vikram has been closely following Dhruv on the sets during the course of the shoot. He’d also butt in and make suggestions wherever necessary.
If everything goes as planned, the film might hit the screens this July. The makers are planning a grand audio launch in June.
