Varun Tej is fresh from the blockbuster success of F2, a film which shows no signs of stopping despite being in theaters for more than 25 days. The film is set to get a worldwide theatrical share of Rs 80 crore and more. Though Venkatesh and his comedy antics are being talked about as the biggest selling points of F2, Varun also more than held his own alongside stars like Venkatesh and Tamannaah. With such a big success in his name, Varun has now started training for his next film, in which he would play a boxer. Debutant Kiran Korrapati would direct this sports film.
This would be the first time that Varun would be playing such a physically demanding role after appearing majorly in soft, young, gentlemanly characters in films like F2, Fidaa, Tholi Prema and his other recent release Antariksham. He could probably take some inspiration and guidance from his elder cousin brother Ram Charan, who is known to be quite a fitness freak and impressed one and all with his sculpted body in films like Dhruva and the recent Vinaya Vidheya Rama.
We can’t wait to see the results of Varun’s LA training.
