The latest buzz in Kollywood is that ace filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon is playing the father of Dhruv, son of Vikram, in his debut movie ‘Aditya Varma’.
A remake of Telugu hit ‘Arjun Reddy’, the film was originally directed by Bala. However, after the producers were ‘unhappy’ with the final product, they decided to shoot the movie fresh with a new director.
The film is now being directed by Gireesaya, associate director of ‘Arjun Reddy’. While Banita Sandhu of ‘October’ fame will be playing the female lead, Priya Anand will be playing a key role in the film.
In a press release earlier, producers E4 Entertainment said, “We at E4 Entertainment are not at all 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.
Instead we will start afresh, and shoot a new Tamil version of ‘Arjun Reddy’ with Dhruv as the main lead by staying true to the soul and intention of the original.”
They added: “Despite this unfortunate turn of events which has 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 new united team towards a June 2019 release.”
