Praising south filmmakers

“If Kantara is doing really well like KGF 2 or Vikram, we should seek inspiration from these films and try and work with each other. It’s the best thing for Indian films to grow right now,” said Varun.

The actor further praised filmmakers like SS Rajamouli, S Shankar, and Lokesh Kanagaraj.

“If Lokesh Kanagraj offered me a role, that’s the director of Vikram and Kaithi, then 100 percent I would love to do a Tamil film with him. If Rajamouli or Shankar offers you why will you not,” said the star.
