Vijay Deverakonda’s Arjun Reddy under the direction of Sandeep Reddy became a raging hit. Featuring Shalini Pandey in the female lead role, this was a modern age love story. It has been established Arjun Reddy is a monstrous hit after which the entire team rose to national fame. Naturally, filmmakers from across the industries showed an interest in remaking the film.
Previously, it was mentioned Ranveer Singh would play Arjun Reddy in the Hindi version of the film. However, due to some reasons this could not work out and the makers roped another actor. The actor is none other than the handsome hunk Shahid Kapoor. After watching his performance in Udta Punjab, Sandeep Reddy decided Shahid would be best suited for the role. Apparently, the Bollywood star would have to shed about 8 to 9 kilos before they start shooting for the Hindi version of Arjun Reddy. Details about the remaining cast and crew are yet to be revealed.
Wishing Shahid Kapoor as well as the entire team of the Hindi version of Arjun Reddy, all the very best for their upcoming film!
