Varun Tej is all set to test his luck with his upcoming movie Valmiki. Touted to be the official Telugu remake of Tamil superhit film, 'Jigarthanda', director Harish Shankar is helming this project.
Yesterday, the makers have unveiled the pre-teaser of the movie and a couple of posters from the film. The teaser showcased Varun Tej in a rugged, massy look which can be considered as one of the major highlights in the film. The poster also revealed Tamil actor Atharvaa Murali who is playing the lead role in this film. In the original film, Siddharth played the lead role whereas Bobby Simha played the role of a villain. Now, in Telugu version, 'Valmiki', Varun Tej is going to reprise Bobby Simha's role and Atharvaa is playing the lead role. Atharwaa Murali played the brother role of Nayanthara in 'Anjali CBI' movie. He is widely known in Kollywood for his outstanding performances in movies like 'Muppozhudhum Un Karpanaigal', 'Paradesi' etc.
Young hero Nikhil's upcoming film 'Arjun Suravaram' is the remake of Tamil movie 'Kanithan' starring Atharvaa Murali. We have to wait and see how this Tamil actor is going to impress the Telugu audience.
