Shahid Kapoor seems really excited for his upcoming project, ‘Arjun Reddy’, he thinks that the project gives him ample space as an actor and he cannot wait to begin shooting for the film. The film will be a remake of the 2017 Telugu film, directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga and featuring Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey in the lead.
The film was panned by critics for being misogynistic and regressive but the performances were highly praised particularly Deverakonda's portrayal of the title character. The Hindi remake, which will see Vanga return as the director, will feature Shahid as Arjun Reddy.
Talking about the film, Shahid told PTI: "I was surprised when I saw the original film because it is unlike the kind of film one watches usually. It has been done so well and doing it for the second time, I don't know, but I wanted to try. It is a great opportunity for me. At the moment, I am growing a beard. We were considering to start shooting this month, but the director wants my beard to grow more. We will start at the end of September."
The Hindi version, to be produced by T-Series Films, is set to release on 21 June next year.
Currently, he is prepping for the release of his next; the social drama titled ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu.’ The film features Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautam alongside Shahid, the film hits the theatres on September 21.
