Mega Prince Varun Tej seems to be taking the path less taken in Tollywood. He is working with the directors who are experimenting in subjects. He made films like Fidaa and Kanche balancing commercial value as well as off-beat subjects. He is currently shooting for Anthariksham, a Space Thriller directed by Sankalp Reddy of Ghazi fame. The movie shooting is currently in progress. Later this month, he will be kickstarting a Pukka Commercial film, F2 – Fun, and Frustration. It is a multistarer movie with Victory Venkatesh in the direction of Anil Ravipudi. He will be shooting for both the films simultaneously.
Reports are emerging that he has given a nod for a film with director Sagar Chandra of ‘Appatlo Okadundevaadu’ fame. Sagar Chandra is an offbeat filmmaker. The film will be produced by 14 Reels and the film will go on floors from December. This seems to be a plan to attract the audience of all segments. After back to failures, Varun Tej is in the success league with Fidaa and followed it up with Tholiprema. The actor should be appreciated for trying something different while the actors of his generation are after mass masala entertainers for commercial success.
