Actor Vijay, who had been in Hyderabad filming his upcoming movie, "Varisu," has just lately returned to Chennai. Vamshi Paidipally is the film's director, and Vijay will be appearing in Telugu for the first time. Actors Ganesh Venkatram and Shaam appear to have finished filming in Hyderabad and have made their way back to Chennai.
Reported to be an emotional family drama, the scripting is done by Vamshi Paidipally, Hari, and Ahishor Solomon, and the dialogues are written by Vivek. The film stars Vijay and Rashmika Mandanna in lead roles. Prakash Raj, R. Sarathkumar, Shaam, Yogi Baby, Prabhu, Jayasudha, Srikanth, Khushbu, and Sangeetha Krish also appear in pivotal roles. Music is composed by S Thaman for the movie. The album consists of six songs. Additionally, a Telugu-dubbed version titled Vaarasudu is also planned by the makers.
Ahead of Vijay's 48th birthday, on June 21, 2022, the title Varisu was revealed. It is Paidipally's second Tamil film after Thozha and the first Tamil film produced by Dil Raju and Sirish under Sri Venkateswara Creations. The second wave of the COVID-19 epidemic in India forced the project's creators to postpone their initial plans to announce it early that year, according to Paidipally. As the movie will take place throughout two separate historical periods, Vijay was also said to be flaunting two different appearances. The movie is expected to hit the theaters in January next year, during the Pongal season.
