Fatima Sana Shaikh to star in Hindi remake of Aruvi 

Fatima Sana Shaikh will star in the Hindi remake of Aruvi. The 2017 Tamil film starred Aditi Balan in the lead role. It told the story of a young girl’s rebellion against consumerism and misogyny. 

The Hindi remake will be helmed by E Niwas, who has directed films like Shool and Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega

"I look forward to dive deep into the skin of the character. I am really excited to embark on this journey," says Fatima.

Niwas adds, "Aruvi is not just the story of a hero. It's a triumph over the labyrinths of life. It's totally euphoric, and a privilege to explore one of the most beautiful cinematic characters I have come across. Fatima Sana Shaikh is an absolutely befitting choice."

The remake is expected to go on floors in mid-2021. It will be produced by Applause Entertainment with Faith Film. 

"Equally funny and ferocious, Aruvi is a provocative, feminist social satire that stunned us when we first saw it," says Applause CEO Sameer Nair. "We were drawn in by its unconventional narrative, deftly balancing its black comedy leanings, with the beats of a tautly-executed thriller."
