Lust Stories actress Kiara Advani will star opposite Shahid Kapoor in the remake of Telugu film Arjun Reddy. Produced by T-Series and Cine1 Studios, Kiara has bagged the Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani, Ashwin Varde’s Arjun Reddy Remake.
Kiara in a statement said, “The film could be a game changer for me and “Arjun Reddy has always been one of my favorite films. There are so many shades to the heroine’s character; I’m very excited about it.”
It is said that the film will require Kiara to have several variations in terms of performance as well as look. Kiara signed for the film early this week and she has already began her creative meetings with Sandeep Vanga. The actress was makers’ first choice but the idea fell through when they faced date issues.
Director Sandeep Vanga is of the opinion that, “Kiara epitomizes the female character in the film. She has the perfect combination of innocence (in terms of looks) and maturity (in terms of performance) that’s so important for the character.”
It will be the first time Shahid Kapoor will be seen with Kiara. Arjun Reddy Remake will go on floors in early October.
