Actor Varun Tej was last seen in Fidaa which was a super hit film in Tollywood this year. The film introduced a new face to Telugu audience – Sai Pallavi – besides giving lead actor Varun Tej a fresh lease of life who was going through a lean phase in his career. Varun Tej will next be seen in a film titled ‘Tholi Prema’ which will be directed by debutante Venky Atluri and will star Raashi Khanna in the lead role. The makers had released the title and first look poster of ‘Tholi Prema’ a while ago which created an excitement around the film. And now, the makers have released a teaser of ‘Tholi Prema’ which is breezy and seems to be a romantic saga. Varun Tej has gone through a complete makeover for ‘Tholi Prema’ and looks impressive in his bearded look in the film. The music of the film is composed by Thaman SS and going by the teaser, the music album sure seems to have full of melodies.

Interestingly, ‘Tholiprema’ was also the title of Varun Tej’s uncle, Pawan Kalyan’s super hit film which starred Keerthi Reddy in the lead role. ‘Tholiprema’ was one of the biggest blockbusters in the career of Pawan Kalyan and was a musical hit too. Directed by A.Karunakaran, ‘Tholiprema’ was released in 1999 and is still considered to be one of the biggest films in Pawan Kalyan’s career.
Varun Tej recently revealed why chose to do a romantic film after the FIdaa and said, “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.”
