Telugu movie Arjun Reddy has proven to be a super hit down South. Following the humungous success of the movie, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga confirmed remaking Arjun Reddy in Bollywood starring Shahid Kapoor.


According to a report in Times Of India, the film was supposed to go on floors this month, but the makers have decided to reschedule the film, which will now roll from August 20.  And this has been done as Shahid needs some more time to prep for his actor. 


Apparently, the lead role required the actor to have a full-grown beard. Thus, director Sandeep Vanga and the actor decided to go with the idea of growing the real beard and that will take some time. And hence, the film will go into production next month.


Well, that’s quite a dedication!


The hunt for the female lead in the movie is reportedly on and the makers are looking for a fresh face to be cast opposite Kapoor.


Earlier, reports came that the remake has cost the makers a hefty amount with the rights alone acquired for a whopping Rs 7 crore if the report is to believed. Usually, the makers have to shell around Rs 2-5 crores for acquiring rights of any particular movie but given the rage that Vijay Deverakonda starrer Arjun Reddy was, the producers had a tough competition.
