Confirmed ! This Super star to play the lead role in Hindi remake of Arjun Reddy
After weeks and months of speculations over who will step into Vijay Deverakonda’sshoes for Hindi remake of Telugu dark comedy Arjun Reddy.
Shahid Kapoor has been confirmed to play the titular role in director Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s (who will be making his Hindi debut) film . There were earlier reports that Arjun Kapoor has been roped in to play the lead however, it is now confirmed otherwise. According to a report in a leading tabloid, the film will be produced by Murad Khetani and Ashwin Warde.
Shahid seems to have given his nod to the project earlier this week and will start prepping for the role soon. He has been busy shooting for Shree Narayan Singh’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu with Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam and will be wrapping up the film soon, giving him time to start with Arjun Reddy. Quoting a source close to the film, Mirror reports, “The film is scheduled to go on the floors in July and the team is looking for an actress opposite Shahid at the moment. While the locations are yet to be finalised, the plan is to shoot in India as well as abroad.” The original film Arjun Reddy, revolved around a surgeon with anger issues. His girlfriend (Shalini Pandey) gets married to someone else, thereby making life worse.
It is a quirky role and we are sure Shahid Kapoor is the apt choice for the role. He is also slated to work in Raja Krishna Menon (Airlift fame) for a real-life based story. After Padmaavat earlier this year, Shahid has some more very interesting roles up his sleeve and we cannot wait to watch him bring his A-game to the big screen again, soon.
