The trailer which got good response from Tamil movie lovers. But this surprising and extremely unthinkable from E4 Entertainment, they came with press release that this film to reshoot completely with other director.
Statement reads as below :
E4 Entertainment had engaged B Studios to recreate the Tamil version of "Arjun Reddy" titled as "VARMAA", on a first copy basis, on the latter's insistence.
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.
Official announcements regarding the new cast and crew including director will be made shortly.
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.
We seek your continued support and blessings as we take up this journey."
The new version of Varmaa to release in June 2019. Producers will cling to Dhruv Vikram as hero in the new version too. In the earlier version Megha Chowdhury as female lead and Eswari Rao, Raiza Wilson and Akash Premkumar in support roles.
However this is very shocking and terrible. Hope the new version will work as they desired.
