Top director to take over Varmaa?

Saturday, February 9, 2019 • Tamil Comments

Varmaa, the official Tamil remake of 2017 Tollywood cult blockbuster Arjun Reddy, was supposed to be the launchpad for Chiyaan Vikram's son Dhruv Vikram, and the movie produced by E4 entertainment and directed by National award winning maker Bala, was progressing well, but recently, there was a shocking update.

After the release of the teaser and trailer, with the movie initially being announced as a Valentines day release, the movie was recently announced to be scrapped, as the makers weren't satisfied with the product delivered by director Bala, and hence had decided to reshoot the entire movie with a new director and team.

While Dhruv will still be the hero of Varmaa, the remaining cast and crew is yet to be announced, and even as there are various speculations, the recent buzz making rounds is that Gautham Vasudev Menon might be roped in to take over Varmaa and direct it. Having directed Chiyaan Vikram in Dhruva Natchathiram earlier, it is to be seen if Gautham can bag this coming of age flick.
