At the press conference, he stated, "We want the audience to watch our Telugu star hero films, Veera Simha Reddy & Waltair Veerayya in theatres first, that is why releasing Vaarasudu in theatres on 14th January."

Dil Raju further said, "I have said many times that Vaarasudu is not in any competition with Chiranjeevi's Waltair Veerayya and Balakrishna's Veera Simha Reddy. Vaarasudu is a complete family entertainer. I have showed family entertainers in the past for Sankranthi, so with the same thought I wanted to release Vaarasudu. But Balakrishna and Chiranjeevi garu need a huge release in Telugu states, so I took this decision positively to release my film later."

On January 12th, Veera Simha Reddy will hit in theatres. In addition, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar plays the antagonist role, and  Shruti Haasan plays the leading lady. The film produced by Mythri Movie Makers, where it met with high anticipation, and the postponment of Varusudu has given Balayya film an enormous head start on its competition on opening day.

Vaarasudu, starring Vijay and Rashmika Mandanna, is a lighthearted film suited for the whole family. The film featured Sarathkumar, Srikanth, Sam, Sangeeta, Jayasudha, and Khushboo in starring roles. The central theme of the film is how a son mends his family's wounds when his father's firm gets clawed from the bad guy. With the film Varisu, producers Dil Raju and Vamshi Paidipalli will make their debuts in Kollywood.
