Flop Actor To Direct Varun Tej!

Venky Atluri, who debuted as hero with 2010 flop movie Sneha Geetham, has now turned into director. He will be soon directing Varun Tej and Raashi Khanna in yet to be titled film. The pooja ceremony for this film was performed today at filmnagar temple with MM Keeravani sounding the first clap. The event was attended by Dil Raju, Naga Babu, Vamshi Paidipally and Vakkantham Vamsi among others.

BVSN Prasad will produce this movie and SS Thaman is composing the music. Varun Tej will start the shooting for this film after he completes Shekar Kammula’s ‘Fidaa’ in which he is playing a role of NRI romancing with Preman beauty Sai Pallavi.

Varun is currently going through lean phase in his career after his last two films Loafer and Mister bombed at the box office. He has kept lot of hopes on Fidaa and expecting this film to give him much-needed break. Fida is scheduled to release on July 2017. Dil Raju is producing the movie on Sri Venkateswara Creations Banner.
