Varun Tej initial choice for Heart Attack says Puri
Director Puri Jagannadh is coming up with a new film tomorrow titled Heart attack. The film stars Nithin and it is gaining momentum at just the right time thanks largely to the two back to back success of actor Nithin. However the actor seems to have landed the project accidentally as he wasn’t the first choice for the film according to the director.

Puri Jagannadh says that while shooting for the film Iddarammayilatho is Spain, he heard a song from the album Rockstar composed by AR Rahman. A song from the album struck the director instantly and stayed with him for day and later taking it as an inspiration, the director came up with the story of Heart Attack. He first narrates the story of Varun Tej and at one point it was almost confirmed to be the debut movie for Varun Tej. However the project somehow failed to take off and later Nithin came in his place. We have to see if the decision to reject was right one or not.
