He had also attached the termination agreement signed between the producers and Bala's B studios on January 22 itself. As Vikram is very impressed with the working style of Gautham Menon, is trying to bring him on the board to direct his son Dhruv's movie Varmaa. The producer added that he would retain Dhruv in the remake as the project's intention is to give a ideal launch to the young actor in Tamil. "E4 Entertainment had engaged B Studios to remake the Tamil version of "Arjun Reddy" titled as "VARMAA", on a first copy basis, on the latter's insistence". As requested by E4 entertainment, B studios have handed over footage, stills, soundtracks, IT tracks, unmixed and mixed songs and tracks. They, however, added Dhruv Vikram will continue to play the male lead.

"Henceforth, E4 Entertainment has the entire rights in perpetuity for the above said film and is free to make changes, additions with the help of technicians and crew of their choice in completing the film", states the agreement. "Despite this unfortunate turn of events which has cost us heavily, our love for wanting to see this cult film in Tamil has not diminished in any way. We will, therefore, work tirelessly as a newly united team towards a June 2019 release". The agreement also mentioned waiving off balance payment by E4 to B studios and mentioned that B studios will make payment to Anand cine services, issuing a no due/ no lien certificate favoring E4 entertainment. Official announcements regarding the new cast and crew including director will be made shortly. In the agreement, Bala made it clear that his name shouldn't be used in any promotional materials of the film. In the presence of actor Vikram, both agreed that Bala would exit the film. She came to know of the development on the Internet.


Varmaa's producer is now planning to rope in some other director to enhance Varmaa with necessary changes.
