Varun Tej in talks to star in Jigarthanda's Telugu remake
Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, the 2014 gangster thriller revolves around a gangster and a filmmaker and what happens when they cross paths
Actor Varun Tej has confirmed that he has been approached with the offer to star in the yet-untitled Telugu remake of Tamil film, Jigarthanda.
Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, the 2014 gangster thriller revolves around a gangster and a filmmaker and what happens when their lives cross. While Siddharth played the aspiring filmmaker, Bobby Simha played the dreaded gangster. Varun Tej has been approached with an offer to essay the latter’s role in the remake directed by Harish Shankar.
“It’s true that the makers have approached me with an offer, but I haven’t officially signed on the dotted line yet. I’m really considering the offer because it’s a film I really liked. I should be taking a call very soon,” said Varun.
Seen playing an astronaut in his last Telugu release, Antariksham, Varun is eagerly looking forward to the release of the Telugu comedy F2 this week. The film has Varun sharing screen space with actor Venkatesh for the first time.
Talking about the experience of working alongside Venkatesh, he said, “I didn’t expect him to be so cool. We had so much fun shooting, and I think the experience helped me to get better at comedy. I’ve acquired great comic skills now.”
