Varun stated that he was spellbound with the script of Fidaa and he immediately said ok with the first narration of director Sekhar Kammula. As the same note, he revealed that Sekhar didn’t write the story for him but for another star hero. It’s none other than Prince Mahesh Babu.When Sekhar approached Mahesh, He said sorry for his unavailability of dates as he has many films lined up. Then Sekhar approached Mega Power Star Ram Charan Tej as he suits well for this script after Mahesh. Even though Cherry liked the script, he said that he was doing almost the same story and put Sekhar in waiting. It’s then when Sekhar saw Varun, the project got materialized immediately as Cherry too encouraged Varun to go ahead.
Due to his health condition, the project was in the halt until now. As he completed Mister, he will soon finish Fidaa under director Sekhar Kammula.
