Varisu, which stars Vijay, is a family drama about the youngest son taking over his father’s business empire while dealing with stiff opposition from his two elder brothers. Directed by Vamshi Paidipally, the film also marked Vijay's debut in Telugu as the film was also shot in the language along with its Tamil version.

Despite releasing alongside Ajith’s Thunivu on the same day, Varisu went on to perform well at the box-office and eventually emerged as the box-office winner.

Last week, Varisu director Vamshi Paidipally was called out for his angry reaction over some criticism that the film has a heavy daily serial hangover. In an interview to Cinema Vikatan, Vamshi asked if the people who criticise a film know and understand the hard work that goes into making films. His response was received with stiff opposition by many people on social media.

“You know how tough it is to make a film these days? Do you know how much a team is working out there to make a film work? You know how much hard work people are putting in to entertain audiences? Brother, it’s not a joke. There are so many sacrifices every filmmaker is making,” Vamshi said.

Vamshi also heaped praise on his hero Vijay, who puts in so much of hard work to rehearse his steps and dialogues for the movie. Vamshi, while picking on the statement that the film feels like a serial for some, said that people shouldn’t degrade TV serials as they keep so many people engaged at home.
