I’m not craving for stardom, says Varun Tej
Interestingly, Varun Tej who hails from the mega family claims that he is not chasing stardom unlike his kin. “I want to be known as a performer because attaining stardom is not in my mind right now,” said the actor.
Talking about his uncle and superstar Pawan Kalyan, he says “Pawan Kalyan is a gutsy man. He is giving up crores of rupees and superstardom to get into politics and serve the people. I wouldn’t have made such a sacrifice if I had been in his place,” he reasons.
The actor after doing action films like ‘Loafer’ has become a sought-after lover boy with the blockbuster ‘Fidaa,’ “Sekhar Kammula has given an image makeover for me” he points out and adds “I don’t know whether `Tholi Prema’ is going to be the next ‘Jab We Met’ or 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani',
but it's certainly going to be the first-of-its-kind in Telugu cinema. It's going to be a very upscale, colourful and urban love story," shares the actor, who had also featured in the national award-winning film 'Kanche'.
