As known already, National Award-winning director Bala is remaking the smash Telugu hit film, Arjun Reddy, under the title Varma produced by E4 Entertainment with ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram’s son, Dhruv Vikram, all set to make his acting debut.

Up until now, the female lead in Varma has not been revealed with several names floating around and latest reports now stating it is none other than actress Shriya Sharma, who is a contender to portray Shalini Pandey's role in the Telugu original. 

It must be noted Shriya Sharma starred as Suriya and Jyothika’s daughter in the hit, Sillunu Oru Kaadhal, released in 2006.

Shriya Sharma has gone on to appear in several Telugu and Hindi films since then as a child artiste before making the transition to female lead roles in 2016.

As of now, apart from Dhruv Vikram, we know actress Easwari Rao of the recently released Kaala, starring ‘Superstar’ Rajinikanth has been cast in a vital role.
