Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor, who will be next seen in Kabir Singh, a remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy, says it is highly stressful remaking a film so much loved by the audience. “I am having a great time. I think Kabir Singh is very special and Arjun Reddy was amazing. As such it’s very stressful making the remake, especially when it has been loved so much,”
Arjun Reddy, starring Vijay Deverakonda, was released in 2017. Shahid said 70 per cent of the shoot has already been completed, adding that “it’s an iconic film”. Kiara Advani plays the female lead opposite Shahid Kapoor in Kabir Singh. It is written and directed by Sandeep Vanga and produced by Cine1 Studios and T-Series. Arjun Reddy is being remade in Tamil as well where Chiyaan Vikram’s son Dhruv Vikram will be playing the lead role.
