Varmaa, Dhruv Vikram’s first film, is a film directed by Bala, bankrolled by E4 Entertainment. The teaser and trailer of the film had released, and received a good response from the public. While the film is nearing it’s release, the producers have officially released a statement- that they are unhappy with the final version, and will be reshooting the movie completely, with a new director.
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 film will be releasing in June 2019, retaining Dhruv as the hero. Varmaa had Megha Chowdhury as the female lead, while Eswari Rao, Raiza Wilson and Akash Premkumar played important roles. Radhan had composed the music. This is the official Tamil remake of the cult Telugu film, Arjun Reddy.
