The statement also added that they are eyeing to release Varmaa in the month of June 2019 and an announcement regarding the new cast & crew of the film will be made in coming days. "Considering Dhruv Vikram's future, I would like to end this here".
It is known news that Tamil movie Varmaa, the official Tamil remake of blockbuster Arjun Reddy, has been put on hold and the producers of the movie plan to re-shoot entire movie. As the final cut of Varmaa was not acceptable to E4 Entertainment and film director, Bala is not agreeable to make any changes.
Now director Bala has made an official press release stating that it was his personal decision to relieve himself from the project for creative freedom and not as said by the producer falsely.
In a statement, Bala said, "I am forced to release this explanation, due to the false statement from the producer of Varmaa". E4 can further modify the existing version, with the condition that they must not use Bala's name anywhere in the project. There is no clarity on whether the filmmaker has agreed to helm the movie. The entire will now be shot again with a new director and cast and crew.
"We at E4 Entertainment are not at all happy with the final version handed over to us and due to various creative and other differences, we have decided not to release this version".
The agreement reveals that a discussion had taken place at Bala's B Studios office in Chennai on January 22, in the presence of Vikram. Notably, Bala and Vikram themselves have been long-time collaborators, making award-winning films together. The critically-acclaimed filmmaker had spurred on Vikram's career with cult hits such as Sethu (1999) and Pithamagan (2003).
In his statement, Mukesh said: "E4 Entertainment had engaged B Studios to recreate the Tamil version of Arjun Reddy, titled Varmaa, on a first copy basis on the latter's insistence". Dhruv will play the lead in the new version.
