Valmiki, the remake of Jigarthanda, a cult gangster movie commenced its shoot today. Featuring Varun Tej, Atharvaa Murali and Mrinalini Ravi in the lead roles, Valmiki is one of the most exciting projects gearing up to hit theatres.
Helmed by Harish Shankar, Valmiki is now all set for a 35 day long schedule which will be shot in and around Hyderabad. All the members of the cast will be a part of this upcoming project. Sources state, Varun Tej is sporting a completely new avatar in this upcoming project. Varun, who recently worked on F2: Fun and Frustration and Antariksham 9000 Kmph, is now trying a completely new genre with Valmiki.
While Atharvaa (who played the role of Siddharth in Jigarthanda,) is paired with Mrinalini, the female lead opposite Varun has not been announced yet. Valmiki is moving at a tremendous pace and updates about this project will be out very soon. Ram Achanta and Gopichand Achanta are bankrolling this project, under the banner of 14 Reels Plus banner.
