Casting of Shahid Kapoor starrer remake of Telugu cult ‘Arjun Reddy’ has begun. Strong female lead character is needed as this is a love story and ‘Student of the Year 2’s Tara Sutaria is the one most likely to get the role. Shalini Pandey portrayed the female lead as Preethi in the original one and she was absolutely magical in the part with a very well written character. People fell in love with her absolutely brilliant role and could see why Arjun would go to hell and back for his girl.
Tara is making her debut with ‘Student of the Year 2’ opposite Tiger Shroff and makers are considering to cash in on the hype of it. A new face is the best thing that they can do to that role especially against a star like Shahid and Tara could be a good choice depending on her acting skills. They have nearly wrapped the shoot of SOTY2 though it is still continuing on it’s last leg. Karan Johar as a producer has great eye for talent and must have seen some credibility in her to launch on that portal as he did with Alia Bhatt in 2012 and she is a gift that just keeps on giving.
Tara’s casting is not confirmed yet though she is shortlisted in high regards and perhaps producers might want to see the rushes of SOTY2 to finalize her in the film. The female character needs to work big time for a love story to be accepted and Reddy is a classic one hence they absolutely can not go wrong with the casting. Shahid was quite excited for his role as he loved what Deverakonda did in the original one and how he became a superstar overnight nearly representing Telugu cinema. Release date of Hindi remake is not finalized yet.
