After a decent hit with F2 earlier in this year, Mega Prince Varun Tej has teamed up with director Harish Shankar for a Gangster drama. Titled Valmiki, the flick is a remake of Tamil cult film Jigarthanda in which Varun will be stepping into the Bobby Simha's shoe.
Valmiki, which is supposed to release on September 13 is likely to postpone for a week to avoid the collision with Nani's Gang Leader. As per the internal sources, the flick will be releasing on September 20. The teaser of the flick released on August 15 has clocked 5 million views. In the teaser, Varun looked intense and powerful, sporting a thick beard and a shiny golden ear hoop.
Bankrolled by Ram Achanta and Gopichand Achanta under 14 Reels Plus banners, Pooja Hegde and Mrinalini Ravi are the female leads in this mass action entertainer while Mickey J Meyer is composing the tunes.
It is high time for Harish Shankar to prove his mettle as a director with the film.
