Kartik Aaryan will reportedly step into the shoes of Allu Arjun in the Hindi remake of ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’.
PinkVilla reports that a number of Bollywood filmmakers have been vying for the Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster. It now seems Rohit Dhawan has snapped up the rights.
A source told the publication, “Allu Arjun and S Radha Krishna are now teaming up one more time to produce Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo in Hindi. The script is in place and they have even got a director on board to helm the project. Rohit Dhawan, who earlier directed Desi Boyz and Dishoom will be captaining this one. The makers wanted to make it with a young Gen-Y star who has a good audience base.”
It is said that Rohit was keen to getting his brother, Varun Dhawan for the film but he ended up choosing Kartik. The source added, “Kartik has been narrated the full Hindi version of the script over a video call recently in the presence of Allu and Radha Krishna. He had loved the original and from what we hear, he has already given his nod to the Hindi remake as well. The team is currently figuring out his dates and will lock the schedule once everything is back to normal.”
