Mega Prince Varun Tej took six months to lose weight and get a ripped look for his next film, a sports drama that presents him as a boxer. Kiran Korrapati is making his directorial debut and the film completed two schedules in Vizag. Boxer is the title considered for the film but it is yet to be locked. On the other side, Vijay Devarakonda too is shooting for a boxing drama and the film is tentatively titled Fighter. Puri Jagannadh is the director of this pan Indian project.
Charmme Kaur recently surprised everyone saying that Fighter is not the title locked for the film. She said that Puri and his team is ready with a unique title that will be announced soon. Varun Tej is now holding talks with Puri Jagannadh to take over the title 'Fighter' for his boxing drama. The title would be locked once Puri Jagannadh gives his nod. Varun Tej is in plans to start the shoot of the film from October. He is hitting the gym and is getting the boxing look after the coronavirus break.
The film will release next year and is produced by Allu Bobby. Saiee Manjrekar is the leading lady and S Thaman is the music composer.
