In Adhira, Varma shared that the central character would harness powers from Lord Indra, promising a unique and captivating storyline. The director expressed his belief that the female-centric superhero film would become iconic for Indian women, connecting with the audience on a profound level.

However, what caught the attention of many was Varma's revelation about the sequel's budget. While confirming "unlimited budget" offers for Jai Hanuman, the director emphasized his reluctance to succumb to the pressure of extravagant spending. Despite acknowledging the high budget demands of the film, Varma stated that he would not blindly accept a colossal budget of Rs 1,000 crore, opting for a more measured approach.

"We will spend only what is required for the film and the story," Varma stressed. He reiterated his commitment to avoiding unnecessary expenses on remuneration and other non-essential aspects, focusing instead on delivering a cinematic experience that aligns with the narrative's vision.

Addressing his reputation for overshooting budgets, Varma acknowledged the jest within his team regarding the success of HanuMan. Despite the film being made at a budget of Rs 40 crore (excluding advertising and marketing), the director admitted to being known for increasing budgets due to constant improvisation in all aspects of filmmaking.

Varma clarified his approach to producers, stating, "If you think that the idea is worth putting more money into, give me the money, I'll shoot the scene. But if you think you can't give more, I'll still shoot the scene." He highlighted his penchant for improvisation during shooting, writing, editing, and dubbing.

HanuMan, starring Teja Sajja in the lead role, enjoyed critical acclaim and success at the box office. Produced by Kandagatla Niranjan Reddy under the Primeshow Entertainment banner, the film showcased Varma's ability to deliver a major hit within a reasonable budget. As the director ventures into his cinematic universe's next phase, fans eagerly await the unveiling of Jai Hanuman and the promise of an immersive storytelling experience.
