Varun Tej who is slowly upping his success streak is on high spirits, as he enjoyed a banner year last year with two hits - F2 and Gaddhalakonda Ganesh. As of now, Varun is doing a sports drama under the direction of debutant Kiran Korrapati. The actor underwent intense training for the film, where he plays a professional boxer. Until recently, there were rumours that Kiara Advani is in talks to play lead lady in the film. But, as per the latest update, not Kiara, but a young Bollywood actress Saiee Manjrekar will romance Varun in the film. Saiee is the daughter of actor and director Mahesh Manjrekar and made her acting debut with Salmaan Khan starrer Dabangg3. An official confirmation is awaited.
