Kareena Kapoor as queen Arundhati in the Hindi remake of Telugu hit ‘Arundhati’
She is already shooting for a challenging role in Madhur Bhandarkar’s film Heroine, and now Kareena Kapoor has bagged the role of queen Arundhati in the Hindi remake of 2009 Telugu blockbuster Arundhati.
The Telugu Arundhati was one of its kind women-centric film set in the ancient times with awe-inspiring graphics and technology. It was also Telugu cinema’s biggest blockbuster. The movie’s super success made Anushka Shetty the top heroine of Telugu films.
It’s said that many top actresses like Katrina Kaif and Rani Mukherjee were in the race to essay the role of queen Arundhati who kills a devil played by Sonu Sood, but the role has finally gone to Kareena Kapoor. In fact, Sonu Sood will play the villain in the Hindi version as well. Gemini Film Circuit has acquired the Hindi remake rights of the film Arundhati and wants to give the same grand feel to the Bollywood version.
Speaking about the role, Kareena Kapoor says, “I am excited to do this that had importance for the female character.” Arundhati is an action thriller with a few gory scenes as well. Anushka Shetty excelled in the character of Arundhati which got her Filmfare Best Actress Award of the year, and also won praises galore.
So not only our Bollywood actors are keen on starring in South remakes, our actresses too have shown their inclination. Arundhati was a blockbuster; will the Hindi remake do justice to the original? When it comes to Kareena Kapoor, we are sure she will look beautiful as the fierce queen on big screen
