Telugu cult Arjun Reddy starring Vijay Deverekonda to be remade in Hindi. Everyone got aware of this all time classic as soon as it released and became a solid film on the box office while touching millions of hearts. Hindi rights of Reddy have been purchased by Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde of cineone studios. Hindi remake of Reddy was in the air supply for a long time and Ranveer Singh was initially attached to play the lead role but he could not as his fair share of negative roles was done for a while because of Padmaavat.
Reddy is being remade in Tamil already by the name of Varma and superstar Chiyaan Vikram’s son Dhruv will be making his big screen debut with this film. Vijay was never interested in playing the character again for Hindi or Tamil audience as he was quite done with the character in his first portrayal. Vijay’s performance has been called one of the best performance of all time in the history of cinema and for anyone to get this role is a big challenge because Vijay owns Arjun Reddy to the core.
The casting of Hindi remake is not done yet though the role is oscillating between Shahid Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor. Arjun has never portrayed a character this intense in his filmography and it would be a whole new ball game for him to pursue this character.
