The title and title poster of Varun Tej's upcoming film, 'Tholi Prema' indicate that its going to be a breezy romantic entertainer. Amidst the speculations that the Varun-starrer draws inspiration from Pawan Kalyan's classic film having the same title, we hear fresh reports that the film borrows its basic plot from hit Bollywood film, 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'.
Produced by Karan Johar and starring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in lead role, 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' was released in 2013 and became a huge blockbuster. The film has love-career conflict at its core with perfect blend of fun and emotions. While Deepika plays a nerdy and introvert student, Ranbir plays a carefree guy in the film. He teaches her to live life to the fullest, be happy and most importantly, to love. And, the conflict starts when the duo falls in love.
We hear that director Venky Atluri has borrowed the main plot of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and reversed the genders in 'Tholi Prema', i.e. Varun plays the introvert character and Raashi Khanna essays the lively character played by Ranbir Kapoor in the Hindi film. Major part of the film has been shot in London.
Tholi Prema is slated for worldwide release on February 9, 2018.
