About 70 percent shooting of Tollywood star Varun Tej’s next film has been completed as the producers announced on Monday that it will hit the screens worldwide during the Valentine week next year. The upcoming film, starring Raashi Khanna as the female lead, is yet to get the title.
The producers said the film, which is touted to be a new age romantic flick, will open in theatres on February 9. Actors Suhasini, Priyadarshini among others also play key roles in the film.
Bankrolled by BVSN Prasad under Sri Venkateswara Cine Chitra, the majority of the film has been shot in the exotic locales of London. Music composer S Thaman has scored tunes for the romantic film, which also marks the directorial debut of writer Veny Atluri.
Cinematographer George C Williams, who has cranked the camera for some of the big south blockbusters like Naanum Rowdydhaan and Theri, is handling the camera for this one too.

Varun Tej was last seen in Fidaa that released to a good response from the fans and critics. It introduced Premam fame Sai Pallavi to the Telugu audience. The film was declared a hit at the box office.
Raashi Khanna, meanwhile, is on a roll in the south Indian film industry. Her debut Malayalam film Villian, starring Mohanlal in the lead, released last Friday and is said to be doing well at the Kerala box office. “Wearing your words on my smile!! Thankyou for appreciating my work in #Villain Your love and support means everything (sic),” she tweeted.
She also played one of the female leads in Tollywood star Jr NTR’s Jai Lava Kusa, which released earlier this year.
