Baahubali film maker SS Rajamouli also praised Varun Tej as he tweeted, “Not a fan of love stories, but still enjoyed moments in #Tholiprema . Well handled by Venky on debut. Varuntej is building on his strengths. Raashi is beautiful & her performance even better. Congratulations Prasad garu & Bapi. Grand production values and a well deserved success (sic).”
Recently the posters of ‘Arjun Reddy’ starring Vijay Deverakonda & Shalini Pandey and ‘Howrah Bridge’ starring Rahul Ravindran & youtube starlet Chandini Chowdary caught the attention of many because of lip lock between the lead pair. Now Tholi Prema is also treading in the same route. The makers have released a poster in which both Varun Tej and Raashi Khanna are seen locking their lips.
On the other side, this is the first hit of Varun Tej, though his previous offering Fidaa, directed by Sekhar Kammula was also hit at the box office but Sai Pallavi grabbed the whole credit of Fidaa Success.
