Varisu / Vaarasudu is a big-budget film featuring Vijay and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles and directed by Vamshi Paidipally and produced by Dil Raju. The budget of the film went over the board, and the number of working days increased. As a result, the makers have decided to scrap a 20-minute episode from the film, for which they spent Rs 10 crores for the making. Tamil actress Khushbu featured in the episode and was paid a hefty remuneration for her role, but the entire episode was removed during the film’s final edit.
Varisu did well in Tamil Nadu during the Sankranthi season and the film remained low in Telugu states. Sarathkumar, Jayasudha, Prakash Raj, Prabhu, Srikanth and Shyam played other important roles in Varisu. In celebration of the film’s success, Vijay recently hosted a party for the entire team of Varisu in Chennai.
The decision to scrap the 20-minute episode has caused some controversy, with some speculating that the episode was too long and would have caused the film to become too lengthy. Others have argued that the episode was removed to make the film more appealing to the audience in Telugu states. Whatever the reason, the decision to scrap the episode has resulted in the loss of Rs 10 crores, which could have been used for other purposes.
