A few months back it was reported that Telugu film Arjun Reddy is being remade in Hindi. Now it has been announced that Shahid Kapoor will play the lead role in the film.
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, Shahid has agreed to step into the shoes of Telugu actor Vijay Deverakonda for the emotional drama. A source was quoted as saying, “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.” In the original film, Shalini Pandey played the female lead opposite Vijay.
The Hindi adaptation will be helmed by Arjun Reddy director Sandeep Vanga, who is making his Hindi directorial debut with the film. The film is also being remade in Tamil with Chiyaan Vikram’s son Dhruv as the lead.
