It was announced recently that a Hindi remake of the Telugu hit film ‘Arjun Reddy’ was in the making. Now, it has been finalised that Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor will play the lead in the film. Talking about the plotline, the source said, “The film’s rights have been bought at a high price and it’s not going to be a typical masala potboiler. Arjun doesn’t want the budget to become an impediment and instead aims to see a quality film minus any compromises. He doesn’t want to overburden the project with his fee.”
“Arjun had worked on the profit-sharing basis in ‘Ki & Ka’ as well but this time, he wants his involvement to be more pronounced. Considering the fact that ‘Arjun Reddy’ got an A certificate, the Hindi version will also be a mature and sensitive film with an intense love story at its heart,” the source added. Arjun has decided to talk about the collaboration with the producer. The original film’s director Sandeep Reddy Vanga will direct even the Hindi version.
