After the success of Gaddalakonda Ganesh, Varun Tej is now working for his next film under the direction of the newcomer Kiran Korrapati. It is a sports-drama that revolves around boxing. Varun Tej is playing the role of a boxer in it. Initially, Saiee Manjrekar got roped in to play the female lead in it. She also shot for a few days for the movie. Now, we hear that the Dabangg 3 actress is being replaced by iSmart Shankar beauty Nabha Natesh.
We still don't know the exact reason for sacking Saiee from the project. But we strongly hear that Nabha is going to replace her soon. The film got done with only the first schedule. Saiee also shot only for a few days. Thus, there will not be major trouble if the heroine gets changed. Nadiya is playing the other lead role in it. The makers are planning to resume the shooting in September this year. It will resume in Vizag. They are going to follow strict lockdown rules while filming the movie.
Varun has beefed up his body to look like a real-life boxer. He got trained under wrestlers and boxers for more than a year. The Fidaa actor is trying hard to look authentic to the role. Thaman is composing the music of this movie. Allu Venkatesh (Bobby) and Sidhu Buddha are jointly bankrolling the film. It will hit the screens next year.
