Adithya Varma, the Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy, is currently being shot in Portugal. The makers have revealed that 65% of the shooting of the new version of the film has been completed.

The film marks the acting debut of Dhruv Vikram, son of South star Vikram.

On Tuesday, lensman Ravi K Chandran took to Twitter to share an update from the sets of the film.

“Adithya Varma. 65% of the film is over in record time. Thanks to the director, cast, crew and our incredible producer Mukesh Mehta,” Chandran tweeted and shared a picture.

Earlier this year, the makers had scrapped the first version of the remake, directed by Bala. They revealed that owing to various creative and other differences they had decided not to release the film.

 In a statement, Bala had said it was his decision to leave the project and denied all allegations made by the producers. 

“I am forced to release this explanation due to the false statement from the producer of Varmaa [the film's original name]. In order to safeguard creative freedom, it was my own decision to relieve myself from the project. Considering Dhruv Vikram’s future, I would like to end this here."

Adithya Varma is being directed by Girisayya, former associate of Arjun Reddy director Sandeep Reddy Vanga.

The new version of the film also marks the Tamil debut of Banita Sandhu, who plays the leading lady. Priya Anand will be seen in a crucial role. 

The film has music by Radhan, who had composed the music for Arjun Reddy as well.
