The Tamil remake was originally titled Varma, and shot with director Bala. However, it was later scrapped after the makers were unhappy with the final output. In a statement, Bala had revealed that it was his decision to leave the project and denied allegations made by the producers.
“I am forced to release this explanation due to the false statement from the producer of Varmaa. In order to safeguard creative freedom, it was my own decision to relieve myself from the project. Considering Dhruv Vikram’s future, I would like to end this here,” he said in a statement.
Producers at E4 Entertainment went on to shoot a new version from scratch with a completely new crew, retaining only the lead, Dhruv, and Arjun Reddy-music director, Radhan. The new team includes October famea actress Banita Sandhu as the female lead, Priya Anand, and cinematographer Ravi K Chandran. The re-shoot began in March with director Giri Sayya.
Arjun Reddy, starring Vijay Devarakonda in the lead, was one of the biggest hits of the Telugu film industry in 2017.
The Hindi version of the film, titled Kabir Singh, starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani, is scheduled for release on 21 June. Adithya Varma, meanwhile, might hit screens in July.
