Here is a mega rumour from the mega family. The Geek God of Telugu Cinema, Varun Tej, who was last seen hitting a sixer with Tholi Prema and Fida is going to shed the good boy look and show the world his darkside.
Remember the Tamil film that unveiled the nuance of dark comedy to the South film industry, Jigarthanda? The movie was directed by Karthik Subbaraju, who rose to fame with Pizza movie. It’s back in news now.
Harish Shankar, the man who directed Gabbar Singh is keen on remaking Jigarthanda in Telugu. Although the movie was dubbed in Telugu, Chikkadu Dorakadu, it faded into oblivion without any attention.
The movie starred Siddarth and Bobby Simha. Harish wants a person with hero status to play the antagonist. He is eyeing on Varun Tej.
With a rich concept like that, Varun immediately gave his nod to the film. Of course, there is no official confirmation about it. Anyway, a modern classic like that, with right amount of hype and with a face like Varun might go on to hit the chords. Varun is currently busy working on first space film, Antariksham.
