Varun Tej to flaunt six-pack in his next
The actor will play a boxer in debutant director Kiran Korrapati’s sports drama, in which he will be experimenting with his looks
Actor Varun Tej has won plaudits for his portrayal of an astronaut in space-thriller, Antariksham 9000 Kmph. And now he is gearing up to play a boxer in debutant director Kiran Korrapati’s sports drama, in which he will be experimenting with his looks.
The Loafer actor will be toning his body and gaining six-pack abs for the character. He is believed to have hired a fitness trainer to attain the athletic look. “After Fidaa, Varun has become extremely choosy and is planning to portray different characters that tap his acting potential. He will be pumping iron under the supervision of a fitness trainer for his next. He has decided to shed all his baby fat to attain a sculpted look,” reveals a source.
In the past, Varun’s cousins and actors, Allu Arjun and Ram Charan, flaunted their six packs in Desamuduru and Dhruva, and it’s interesting to see Varun now joining the six-pack brigade.
To be bankrolled jointly by Allu Bobby and Siddhu, the untitled film will go on floors in March. In the meantime, Varun’s next release, F2: Fun and Frustration is slated for release on January 12.
