Varisu will see Vijay paired with national sensation Rashmika Mandanna for the first time and the on-screen chemistry between them has been nothing else than electric after what fans got to witness in the 'Ranjithame' song, which came out sometime back. The film's first single has received stunning feedback from fans everywhere crossing more than 70 million views and garnering over 2 million likes on YouTube, while also emerging on top across leading audio streaming platforms. Varisu is also coming out in Telugu under the title Vaarasudu and producer Dil Raju has assured fans the film will be released across a good number of screens in Andhra Pradesh & Telangana. 

Expectations for Varisu are immense and social media has been abuzz regarding Vijay's role as it has been revealed that the film will be along the lines of his blockbusters like Poove Unakkaga (1996) and Thulladha Manamum Thullum (1999), and will be a step away from the full-fledged action roles the actor has been seen in recent times. Although the film has been described to be a family entertainer, there will be ample amount of action and other commercial aspects catering to audiences of all ages, and it now remains to be seen what the makers have cooked up for fans everywhere.
