It looks like Varun Tej will have some royal company in the form of actress Aditi Rao Hydari on the sets of his upcoming film with Sankalp Reddy. The space thriller will see Varun donning an astronaut’s role with Aditi playing his colleague. The duo will be seen working together on a space mission in the film.
“Aditi was quite impressed by the intriguing and fresh script that Sankalp narrated to her. The filmmakers were initially apprehensive if she’d be interested in the project, but were ecstatic seeing her enthusiasm after listening to the script; it was a boost for them,” shares a reliable source.
Since it will be a space film, for which Varun has undergone some preliminary training in Kazakhstan, Aditi will be expected to do the same. However, the film will have one more female lead. “The other actress will have a comparatively small, but important role. She will be Varun’s love interest,” adds the source.
