The Vijay Deverakonda starrer Arjun Reddy was one of the biggest hits of 2017. The Hindi remake starring Shahid Kapoor Kabir Singh, has also become a blockbuter. The Tamil remake Adithya Varma is all set to hit the screens soon.
What makes the Tamil version interesting and the one that many people are looking forward to is that it marks the debut Dhruv, Chiyaan Vikram's son. Also the film is directed by Gireesaaya, AD of Sandeep Reddy Vanga who directed the Telugu and Hindi films.
Given that both films had their fari share of positive and negative comments, there is a fear that the Tamil film may also face some backlash. But Vikram isnot worried about that. In an interview with a leading daily, he said, "Adithya Varma will actually be a little more innocent than both Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy. Dhruv is more a college student than both Vijay Deverakonda and Shahid Kapoor. Even director Sandeep Vanga felt that Dhruv was most suited to play this role. Dhruv's character won't have the bravado or overt machismo seen in the other two films. Although it is a remake, there are no attempts to amp up the shock value. So, I feel the reaction won't be the same here."
The film also stars Banita Sandhu and Priya Anand.
