The cult Telugu film, Arjun Reddy (2017), is officially being remade in Hindi by director Sandeep Reddy Vanga and producers Murad Khetani and Ashwin Varde of Cinel Studios. Vanga made his directorial debut with the film and will now helm the Hindi version as well.
Starring Vijay Devarakonda and Shalini Pandey, Arjun Reddy tells the story of a young doctor, with anger issues, whose relationship with his girlfriend falls apart after her father's opposition. The character then goes on a downward spiral.
The news was announced on Twitter by trade analyst Taran Adarsh.
