Earlier this week, Ahimsa Entertainment informed on social media that they hope Varisu to break into the top three highest-grossing films of all time in the UK by Monday (January 23) and it now remains to be seen how fast the film reaches that spot. Directed by Vamshi Paidipally under Dil Raju's Sri Venkateswara Creations banner and featuring chart-topping music by S. Thaman, the film has been receiving a staggering response in the UK and several parts of Europe, including France, with family audiences giving a double thumbs-up to Vijay's latest entertainer.
The makers of Varisu are tasting big success after the stupendous response in both Telugu and Hindi markets as well where the film's dubbed versions, Vaarasudu and Varisu, too have witnessed tremendous feedback from fans. Vijay is paired with Rashmika Mandanna for the first time and the national sensation is one of the major USPs of the film, which also has an ensemble star cast that includes names like R. Sarathkumar, Prabhu, Prakash Raj, Shaam, Srikanth, Yogi Babu, Jayasudha, Sangeetha Krish, Samyuktha Shanmughanathan, Nandini Rai, Ganesh Venkatraman, Sriman, VTV Ganesan, Bharath Reddy, Sanjana among others, while SJ Suryah makes a cameo appearance. It is also being stated that there are plans to release the Varisu deleted scenes featuring Khushbu Sundar and John Vijay.
