Varun Tej is an Indian film actor who works predominantly in the Telugu film industry. Tej made his debut as a lead in the filmMukunda directed by Srikanth Addala opposite Pooja Hegde. In Kanche, he portrayed Dhupati Haribabu, the grandson of a poor barber, who falls in love with Seethadevi who later goes on to fight in World War II. His third film, Loafer, was directed by Puri Jagannath and released on 18 December 2015.
Director Chandoo Mondeti whose debut directorial Karthikeya was a big hit and his new film Premam starring Naga Chaitanya is set for release in next month has narrated a story to Varun Tej. Apparently, Varun will make his decision after release of Premam.
Although Varun Tej is doing films one after the other, he is watchful about scripts of his films. He kept Mister on hold until Srinu Vaitla made needful alterations to the script. Varun rejected few films in the meantime, mainly because of his dissatisfaction towards the scripts.
Likewise, Varun Tej is choosy about directors too, since he doesn’t want to take any risks at this stage. The ‘Mukunda’ star is typically picking experienced directors who have the abilities to provide him hits.
In fact, Varun Tej is not worried about fate of Premam, he wishes to see how the director Chandoo handles the subject and the hero.
On the flip side, Chandoo Mondeti who has become one of the most sought after directors with Karthikeya is hoping to score second hit with Premam. Let’s see whether he gets nod from Varun Tej.
