Approached for 'Jigarthanda' Telugu remake: Varun Tej

Actor Varun Tej has confirmed that he has been approached with the offer to star in the yet-untitled Telugu remake of Tamil film "Jigarthanda".

Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, the 2014 gangster thriller "Jigarthanda" revolves around a gangster and a filmmaker and what happens when their lives cross paths.

While Siddharth played the aspiring filmmaker, Bobby Simhaa played the dreaded gangster.

Varun Tej has been approached with an offer to essay Simhaa's role. Harish Shankar will direct the remake.

"It's true that the makers have approached me with an offer but I haven't officially signed on the dotted line yet. I'm really considering the offer because it's a film I really liked. I should be taking a call very soon," Varun told IANS. 

Seen playing an astronaut in his last Telugu release "Antariksham", Varun is eagerly looking forward to the release of Telugu comedy "F2" this week.

The film has Varun sharing screen space with actor Venkatesh for the first time.

Talking about the experience of working alongside Venkatesh, he said: "I didn't expect him to be so cool. We had so much fun shooting, and I think the experience helped me to get better at comedy. I've acquired great comic skills now."
