Said to be a romantic story, Tholi Prema will have Varun Tej playing a young man who has an interesting journey with his love life and which has its own twists and turns. Speaking about why he chose to do a love story again after Fidaa, Varun says that the director Venky Atluri’s perception and presentation of love in the story was different., and that made him go for it. “People must be wondering why I’m doing two back-to-back love stories. Venky’s love story is very different and that’s why I didn’t mind doing these films in succession. Both of these films have their own charm. Even though Fidaa was a love story, Sekhar’s touch and presentation made it stand out. Similarly, Venky has perceived love so differently and that’s what makes his film different,” Varun had said recently speaking about Tholi Prema.
On the other hand, Raashi Khanna says that her role in Tholi Prema is something she has never done before and has been waiting to do all this while. “The role I was waiting for came in the form of Varsha in Tholi Prema. It’s always exciting to be part of films where you matter and add value. This is one such character for me. I believe the film will establish me as an actor because I have put in great effort to be a character I couldn’t relate to even at a basic level,” Raashi had said recently while speaking about her role in Tholi Prema.
