Shahid Kapoor to star in Telugu film Arjun Reddy remake
It’s goodbye Ranveer Singh, hello Shahid Kapoor for the long-awaited remake of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy.
Many presumed that Vijay Deverakonda, who took on the character in the original Telugu flick, would slip into the Hindi version as well.
However, confirmed sources reveal that it is Shahid who will take on the part.
The source says, “Director Sandeep Vanga wanted Ranveer to play Arjun Reddy. But after Padmavati, Ranveer is voluntarily off-limits for dark types. So, Sandeep then went to Shahid, for whom this role would be an antithetical change after the noble royalty in Padmavati.”
Shahid would require intense training, including losing at least eight to nine kilos.
He would also need to learn how to snort cocaine and how to inject himself with stimulants and uppers.
