Kartik Aaryan's Hindi Remake Of Allu Arjun's Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo Produced by Ekta Kapoor To Go On Floors in 2021
Allu Arjun starrer Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo went on to be a blockbuster hit. Rumours of the film being made in Hindi have been doing the rounds for a long time now. Reportedly Ekta Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan are coming together for the Hindi remake of the Stylish Stars hit flick.
As reported by sources to Midday, “Before the lockdown, Kartik had been approached for the role of Bantu, which was played by Allu. The role is apt for Kartik, who is also a good dancer. The deal was apparently finalized on Thursday, and Kartik will film for it after he wraps up Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Dostana 2. The movie will roll in early 2021.”
Sources added, “The makers are scouting for an established actor, like Aparshakti Khurrana or Angad Bedi, to play Raj’s role. Paresh Rawal is in contention for the role of Bantu’s father. News of Kartik’s entry is being kept under wraps as the makers want to announce the remake in September.”
The yet-untitled commercial potboiler will be produced by Ekta Kapoor with South producer Allu Aravind, who also produced the original. Reportedly Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’s Bollywood remake is expected to go on floors by 2021.
Directed by Trivikram Srinivas, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo starred Allu Arjun and Pooja Hegde in the lead role. The film released on Sankranti went on to become one of the highest-grossing Telugu films to date. Songs too went on to be chartbusters.
