Bollywood producer, Ashwin Varde, of Kabir Singh fame, had already grabbed the rights of Allu Arjun’s blockbuster movie Ala Vaikunthapuramulo, before the lockdown was announced in India.
Now they plan to make the movie in Hindi. And the initial paperwork is now complete. It is being said that the deal has been locked at a great price too.
But now the major point of the lead cast is yet to be decided. Ashwin is actually confused between two actors and that is Ranveer Singh and Kartik Aaryan.
Many people from Bollywood feel that Ranveer Singh is best suited for this particular role.
“Ranveer suits the role perfectly and the makers are looking at casting him. But one school of thought is to also cast the much younger Kartik Aaryan. Now Allu is 37, Ranveer is 34 and Kartik is just 29. Hence, the makers are slightly tilted towards Ranveer, more so after how he had his own interpretation of the character in Simmba. But you never know what will happen in the long run,” say trade sources.
