Earlier this month, E4 Entertainment, which holds the Tamil remake rights of the superhit Vijay Deverakonda-starrer Arjun Reddy announced that they are not happy with the Bala-directed Varmaa, and will therefore not be releasing it. They went on to reveal that Dhruv Vikram, who was set to make his debut as the lead, would be retained in the new version of the remake, which they would shoot from the scratch. It has now been revealed that this new version will be titled Adithya Varma.
It is also said that Gireesaaya, a former associate of Arjun Reddy-director Sandeep Vanga, will be directing the new version while, Radhan will be composing music. It is being speculated that Priya Anand is in talks to play the female film star character in the new version, which was portrayed by Raiza in Varmaa.
