Shahid Kapoor has been busy with the back to back projects, 'Arjun Reddy' and a biopic on boxer Dingko Singh. The actor recently featured in a music video called 'Urvashi'.
Shahid’s recent release 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' tanked at the box office. The hero is now getting ready to start the shooting of the Hindi remake of Telugu super hit film 'Arjun Reddy'. Kiara Advani is going to play the female lead in the movie. Talking about the original film “I usually don’t watch too many films in Telugu and it surprised me with its tonality, rawness, simplicity and the fact that it was so real and believable. The character is very fascinating for me as an actor because the emotional arc... is very original. I loved it and Vijay Deverakonda, who played Arjun, did it so well." Said Shahid.
The original version of 'Arjun Reddy' director Sandeep Vanga will be directing the Hindi version as well. This will be his Hindi directorial debut. Tamil remake of the film is also going on with Vikram's son Dhruv in the lead.
