Harish Shankar recently announced that he is going to remake Jigarthanda with Varun Tej and the young actor said that the talks are still going on. He did say that he is interested in doing the role he is offered for sure.
Now, we hear that with this move has hurt Ravi Teja and Sai Dharam Tej, his previous film heroes. The director did approach Ravi Teja for a character and he accepted to be part of it. As per the sources, he asked the director to come back after Amar Akbar Anthony release and director accepted.
Sai Dharam Tej too accepted the offer and showed great interest to be part of the film, it seems. But then signing his cousin did hurt him as the actor thought director could have informed him before doing so.
Anyways, Harish Shankar is trying to pacify them before taking his movie to sets, it seems. Till nothing about the movie have been confirmed.
