Sundeep Reddy directed Arjun Reddy featuring Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey became a blockbuster hit! Now, Sandeep is looking to make this movie in other languages as well. He is currently working on releasing the Hindi version of Arjun Reddy featuring Bollywood star Arjun Kapoor. The remake rights have been acquired by producers Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde of Cine1 Studios.
In a recent interview, Sandeep Reddy opened up about the obstacles he was facing in making the Hindi remake of Arjun Reddy. Initially, he wanted to cast Ranveer Singh in the lead role. For some reasons, that combination did not work out. Then the director decided to cast Shahid Kapoor in the role of Arjun Reddy. However, his producers were not okay with this combination.
Finally, they decided to cast Arjun Kapoor in the lead role. However, Sandeep put forth a condition that Arjun would have to lose about 20 kilos to play the part. It’s either this or they go ahead with Shahid Kapoor. Sandeep gave the producers an ultimatum that if both these options do not work out, he would leave the Hindi remake of Arjun Reddy.
Wishing Sandeep Reddy as well as the entire team of the Hindi remake of Arjun Reddy, all the very best for their upcoming project!
