Was curious enough to take on Arjun Reddy: Shahid Kapoor
The actor talks about his upcoming remake of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy
Shahid Kapoor, who will play the title role in the Hindi remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, says he is both curious and excited about the film.
"I wanted to try this part and see what I can do with it. I was curious enough to take it on and excited enough to not let it go."
The Batti Gul Meter Chalu actor says he thoroughly enjoyed Arjun Reddy as a viewer. "I usually don't watch too many films in Telugu. This film surprised me with its tonality, rawness, simplicity and the fact that it was so real and believable. The character is very fascinating for me as an actor because of the emotional arc, which is very original. I loved it and Vijay Deverakonda, who played Arjun, did it so well," he adds.
Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who also helmed the original, the remake will go on floors next month. Arjun Reddy, starring Vijay and Shalini Pandey in the lead, revolves around a medical student with anger management issues.
