The shoot of Valmiki is happening at a brisk pace and the team is set to release the pre-teaser on June 24 at 5:18 pm. The news about the teaser is doing rounds and the news that it is underway is known. Directed by Harish Shankar, the film has Varun Tej, Atharva Murali, Pooja Hegde and others in lead roles. Pooja’s character is said to be one of the highlights of the film. Lakshmi Menon was part of the film initially, but Pooja has replaced her.
Valmiki is the official remake of Jigarthanda, a Tamil film which has Siddharth and Bobby Simha in lead roles and is being produced by Ram Achanta and Gopi Achanta.
Harish Shankar is going to make some changes to the script as per the Telugu nativity. If everything goes on time, the film is expected to release later this year. After finishing this film, Varun will begin shooting for his upcoming sports drama.
