Varun Tej is on a roll with his last release Tholi Prema doing well at the theatres. Released on February 10th, the film garnered positive response which has created high expectation levels for the hero’s next. Well, it is now confirmed that he will be starring in Sankalp Reddy’s upcoming space thriller. This will be the director’s second outing after the massive success of his previous venture Ghaazi. According to latest reports about the space thriller, we hear that Aditi Rao Hydari is to play the female lead. The filmmakers have approached the actor but the deal is yet to be inked.
Yet to be titled, this space thriller will go on to the floors next month and the director is busy preparing the groundwork for it. The film will be bankrolled by Rajiv Reddy and Sai Baba Jagarlamudi under their banner First Frame Entertainments. Varun Tej and others in the star cast will have to work in zero-gravity conditions and are getting trained for it. Sources close to the film unit revealed that the training session will be held in Kazakhstan and the actors would be stationed there for some weeks to get accustomed to it. Sources say that this space thriller will be made on a huge budget with the filmmakers planning to allocate a major chunk of it for the graphics work alone. More details about this project such as the cast and crew are expected to be announced soon.
It may be mentioned here that Varun Tej’s last two films – Fidaa and Tholi Prema – were big hits and he hopes to score a hat trick with this space thriller.
Aditi Rao Hydari made her acting debut with the Malayalam movie Prajapathi in 2006 and then in the Tamil movie Sringaram a year later. In 2009, she was seen in the Bollywood flick Delhi 6 and since then has acted in a number of films. Some of the films in her filmmography include Yeh Saali Zindagi, London, Paris, New York, Murder 3, Fitoor, The Legend of Michael Mishra, Padmaavat etc. She is currently busy with the Hindi flick Daas Dev and the Tamil movie Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
