Varun Tej has finally returned to bay after a month-long with his wife and actress Lavanya Tripathi. He has kick-started the shooting of his next film Matka, a period action drama. The actor shared a photo from the sets offering a glimpse of his day 1.
Varun Tej's day 1 of Matka looks like this
Taking to his Instagram Stories, he dropped a photo of himself from his vanity hinting that he was getting ready for the shot. In the image, one can see him sitting on a chair in front of the mirror. The text on the image read, "Matka day 1".
The film was announced last year and it was supposed to go on the floors in the first week of December. However, owing to Varun's vacation, the filming was seemingly postponed to January 4.
More about Matka
The film is set to have 9 intense action sequences, and for the same, Varun will be working with four stunt choreographers to bring these dynamic scenes to life. The film is intricately woven into the historical backdrop of Vizag, spanning the years 1958-1985.
Speaking about the film, Tej said: “Matka is a period drama that is very close to my heart. We’ve all put in a lot of hard work and I'm sure everyone will enjoy it. I am also really looking forward to Operation Valentine, you can expect a lot of action and entertainment in both films.”
To authentically capture the vision, the production team is constructing an expansive set replicating Vizag's Old City (One Town area) on the outskirts of Hyderabad. The film, directed by Karuna Kumar, also stars Meenakshi Chaudhary as the leading lady. Varun, on the other hand, has dedicated the past six months to a rigorous workout routine, aiming to portray a lean and formidable character in the movie.
Matka is produced by Mohan Cherukuri (CVM) and Vijender Reddy Teegala on Vyra Entertainments banner with G.V. Prakash Kumar serving as the music composer.
