Varma: The first look of Dhruv from Arjun Reddy remake

Varma: The first look of Dhruv from Arjun Reddy remakeChiyaan Vikram shared the first look of his son Dhruv  from the upcoming film ‘Varma’, the Tamil remake of Telugu blockbuster ‘Arjun Reddy’. Dhruv can be seen in a raw and dashing avatar that he carries off like a boss. His macho look may remind fans of his father  Vikram. The regular shoot of the film has been already started in Kathmandu, Nepal.  However, it may not be a frame-to-frame remake of Arjun Reddy as some changes could be made by the makers  to suit the Tamil sensibilities.

The movie is being helmed  by Bala, who last directed the hard-hitting crime drama, Naachiyaar starring Jyothika. It seems Chiyaan Vikram was insistent that the Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy, should be directed by Bala only.

Arjun Reddy, helmed by Sandeep  Reddy  Vanga,  was one of the biggest surprise hits of 2017, in which  young heartthrob Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey played the lead role.  The content of the film was highlighted  because of his bold scenes and liplocks.  Vijay’s character  in the film was that of a brilliant surgeon who falls prey to alcoholism after suffering in love.
