Monitoring Desk

MUMBAI: From the time the Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster, Arjun Reddy, has been announced, its casting has been a major point of discussion. The edgy love story first made waves when the director of the original, Sandeep Vanga, was taken aboard by producer Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series to helm the Hindi version as well.

After that, the film made headlines when Shahid Kapoor was locked to play the title role. Earlier there were reports that Shahid Kapoor’s love interest would be played by newbie Tara Sutaria, however it did not materialise due to some reasons. But now it is confirmed that Kiara Advani will play the role of Shahid’s lover.

Kiara and Sandeep had even met and discussed the possibility. But later, due to date issues (the film was supposed to go on floors in August earlier), the talks took a bit of a backseat. Now that the film is going on floors in early October, things fell back in place. Early this week, Kiara was signed for the film and the actress has even started her creative meetings with Sandeep Vanga.
