As we have earlier reported that Siva Karthikeyan will play the lead in the Tamil remake of Allu Arjun’s blockbuster film Ala Vaikunthapurrmuloo, we have got our hands in yet another report stating that Kartik Aaryan to step into Allu Arjun’s shoes in the Hindi version of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
According to reports, top filmmakers made record bids to get the Hindi rights of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo but now we have heard that the original makers of the film will produce the Hindi remake of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo as well.
A source close to Pinkvilla said, “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.”
Like others, you may have thought that Rohit Dhawan would cast Varun Dhawan to play the lead in Alu Vaikunthapurramuloo Hindi remake. But, they have taken Kartik Aaryan on board to play the lead.
“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.”
With this new addition, Kartik Aaryan’s kitty seems to be already full. “Kartik has to finish Dostana 2 first, and simultaneously shoot for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 which he had just begun. Right after these two films are complete, he will start the Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo remake while his next with Om Raut will be ready to go on floors by then. But in all possibilities, Kartik’s team is working the dates in such a way that the remake rolls this year itself and is ready for a release early 2021.”
