After scoring consecutive super-hits with his last two films F2 and Gaddalakonda Ganesh, Varun Tej is currently shooting for a boxing drama. Directed by debutant filmmaker Kiran Korrapati, this film features Varun Tej as a professional boxer. The actor has successfully wrapped up the first schedule of the film in Vizag and landed in Hyderabad the other day.
Varun Tej got papped at the Hyderabad International Airport last evening. The actor is looking dapper wearing a black t-shirt and blue torn jeans. He bulked up his body heavily to suit the role of a boxer.
The shooting of this untitled sports drama began a few days back in Vizag. The sources claimed that the second schedule will begin very soon. Naveen Chandra is also playing an important role in this movie. We hear that Kannada star hero Upendra might play a crucial role as well.
Varun Tej got trained in boxing for more than four months under professional boxers, to look like an authentic boxer in the film. He took a long time to get the nuances right and the makers only took the film on floors when they found Varun ready. Varun is one of the heroes from Mega family who is really trying to make a mark with the right kind of films in his career. After attempting a couple of romantic entertainers, he is now into sports drama.
This film is being produced jointly by Allu Venkatesh and Siddhu Mudha. Thaman is composing the music for it.
