Helmed by filmmaker Vamsi Paidipally, the film stars actor Rashmika Mandanna in the lead.
The title and first look poster of popular Kollywood actor Vijay’s upcoming film with Rashmika Mandanna was released on Tuesday, June 21. The film was earlier tentatively titled as Thalapathy 66 since the actor is fondly known as Thalapathy and the project marks his 66th film. The movie has been titled Varisu. Vijay looks debonair in the first look poster where he is seen donning a gray plaid three-piece suit. The poster, which was unveiled on Tuesday, June 21, ahead of Vijay’s birthday on June 22, also features the tagline ‘the boss returns’. Vijay sports an intense look in the poster. The film is set to hit the big screens next year during the festival of Pongal.
