Varun Tej is riding high after the success of Fidaa and Tholi Prema and according to rumours, the Mega actor is showing interest to playing the role of the antagonist in an upcoming film, which is a remake from Tamil. Director Harish Shankar of Gabbar Singh fame is planning to remake superhit Tamil film Jigarthanda in Telugu. This is the film in which Varun wants to play the villain.
The original Tamil film, which was directed by Karthik Subbaraj, featured actors like Siddharth and Bobby Simha in lead roles and now Harish is searching for an villain who has hero image. Rumours say that Varun wants to take up the challenge. This is however an unconfirmed news.
It may be recalled that Jigarthanda, one of the finest dark comedies, was earlier dubbed into Telugu as Chikkadu Dorakadu, which flopped.
