After so many offers made finally Arjun Reddy, Hindi remake gets a fitting lead. And it is Arjun for Arjun! Arjun Kapoor is the best match for Arjun Reddy!
Arjun For Arjun!
The phenomenal success of Arjun Reddy paved way for the path-breaking Telugu film to be remade in several languages including Hindi. But, the lead role essayed by Vijay Deverakonda is challenging and audacious. The task is such that hardly any top hero is willing to reprise it despite having witnessed its potential.
Director Sandeep Vanga, who helmed the Telugu version, is also on board to direct the Bollywood remake. His first choice for the lead role was Ranveer Singh. Considering how eccentric and enigmatic an actor the ‘Bajirao Mastani’ star is. Ranveer, however, turned down the role. Surely because he wasn’t keen to play another intense character after playing Allauddin Khilji in ‘Padmaavat’.
Sandeep then approached another top hero, Shahid Kapoor, who also turned down the offer for the reasons best known to him. As the next option, the director identified another young hero, Arjun Kapoor, who finally gave his nod and agreed to come on board. The lead heroine is yet to be finalized.
The Bollywood remake will go on floors this year.
