Shahid Kapoor has beaten Arjun Kapoor to bag the role in the Hindi remake of Arjun Reddy, the film which catapulted Vijay Deverakonda’s image in the top league among Tollywood biggies. A known source tells us, “Shahid gave his nod for the project recently and has even started to prep for the role. The film is scheduled to go on the floors in July and the makers are excited at the prospect of having Shahid on board.”
The film will be directed by Sandeep Vanga, who directed the original flick. To be produced by Ashwin Varde and Murad Khetani, the film will go on pre-production stage soon.
