Dhruv Vikram, son of actor Vikram was supposed to make his acting debut with director Bala’s Varmaa. However, it looks like his debut has to wait for another couple of months. Varmaa, as we know, is the official Tamil remake of Telugu blockbuster flick Arjun Reddy that starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. In a shocking turn of events, E4 Entertainment has announced that they were unhappy with the final version of the film and that the film will be re-shot completely with Dhruv Vikram playing the lead role. Initially, E4 Entertainment had associated with Bala’s B Studios to fund the Tamil version of Arjun Reddy.
Now, the former has said, E4 Entertainment, are not at all happy with the final version handed over to them and due to various creative and other differences, they have decided not to release this version. Instead, will start afresh, and shoot a new version of ‘Arjun Reddy’ with Dhruv as the main lead staying true to the soul and intention of the original. Going by the press release, it looks like director Bala and members of E4 Entertainment had a major fallout as he will also be replaced in the new version of Varmaa. The official announcement regarding the cast and crew of the film will be announced shortly. The press release also read, “Despite this unfortunate turn of events which cost us heavily, our love for wanting to see this cult film in Tamil has not diminished in any way.
We will, therefore, work tirelessly as a newly united team towards a June 2019 release.Varmaa had newcomer Megha Chowdhury, Eswari Rao, Raiza Wilson, Akash Premkumar and Sandra Amy in pivotal roles. Now, it is unclear whether all of them would be replaced or not. The Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy was supposed to hit the theatres on Valentines Day on February 14. Later, it was announced that the release has been postponed. At the launch of Varmaa, Dhruv Vikram said that he felt comfortable because of director Bala’s presence on the sets. For the uninitiated, director Bala introduced Vikram in Sethu and the two share a close bond with each other.
