The cult blockbuster ‘Arjun Reddy’ created a mania among the youth and masses and it also brought about a star hero to the Telugu cinema industry in the form of the radical stud Vijay Deverakonda. As expected, the film caught the attention of the other film industries and it is now being remade in Tamil and Hindi.
Recently the trailer of the Tamil version came out and it has been receiving flak because it is no match to the original. Meanwhile, the Bollywood version is going to have the vegetarian hunk Shahid Kapoor stepping into the shoes of Vijay. It is heard that Shahid reportedly mentioned he is quite curious and excited about doing this role.
While that is fair enough, few intellectuals are expressing doubt whether he can really pull off a stunner like Vijay. As such, Shahid is a great performer and he proved his mettle in movies like ‘Haider’ and ‘Udta Punjab’. However, his graph is currently in a low and he is certainly not a crowd puller. Only time will reveal the outcome.
