Talking about Varun’s last release Gaddalakonda Ganesh, the film which hit big screen last month was successful in drawing the audience to the theatres. The film has been declared a super-hit and the Telugu venture helmed by Harish Shankar garnered positive response and applauds from all over.
Prior to its release, the Varun starrer was surrounded by controversy following its original name i.e Valmiki. As the original title of the film was objected by members of Boya Community. The members of the community had also filed a petition in court as they didn’t want Varun starrer to release with its original title as it hurt their sentiments. It was only a day before the film’s release the Telangana High Court issued a notice asking the makers strictly to retitle the film’s name
The Harish Shankar directorial has Pooja Hegde in lead opposite Varun.
