The Tollywood producer Raju talks about his initial plans of signing Tollywood stars instead of Thalapathy Vijay for ‘Vaarasudu’

Ahead of its Sankranthi 2023 theatrical release, the straight Tamil flick ‘Varisu’ has stayed in the limelight; for both positive and controversial reasons. In the latest, Dil Raju, who presents the Telugu version Vaarasudu under his banner Sri Venkateswara Creations in the Telugu States, stated that Mahesh Babu was initially considered for the project. "I had a conversation with Vamsi (Paidipally). We initially thought of making the movie (Varisu) with Mahesh Babu. But his schedule was jam-packed, making it difficult for him to invest time in this project," said Raju. The producer added that RRR star Ram Charan was also considered to essay the lead. However, owing to Charan's busy schedule, things didn't work out, remarked Raju.

Nevertheless, the makers finalised Tamil star Thalapathy Vijay as they deemed him fit to lead the multi-genre film. Co-starring Rashmika Mandanna, the Vamshi Paidipally directorial 'Varisu' gears up for a theatrical release on January 13, 2023. Currently, 'Vaarasudu' is in the soup since the movie bagged the majority of theatres when compared to the straight Telugu releases; Chiranjeevi-starrer Waltair Veerayya and Veera Simha Reddy, which has Nandamuri Balakrishna in a dual role.
