The latest buzz in Tollywood is that Prabhas would join hands with director ‘Arjun Reddy’ fame Sandeep Reddy Vanga for a new film.
Sources said the ‘Baahubali’ hero was impressed by the storyline and screenplay narrated by the ‘Kabir Singh’ maker. Apparently, T Series and Mythri Movie Makers are expected to join hands for bankrolling the project.
‘Arjun Reddy’ is a 2017 romantic drama film written and directed by Sandeep Vanga, and produced by his brother Pranay Reddy Vanga’s company Bhadrakali Pictures. It stars Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey in the lead roles, and Rahul Ramakrishna, Jia Sharma, Sanjay Swaroop, Gopinath Bhat, Kamal Kamaraju and Kanchana in supporting roles.
The film tells the story of Arjun Reddy Deshmukh (Deverakonda), a high-functioning alcoholic surgeon who has anger management problems. Arjun is on a self-destructive path after the marriage of his girlfriend Preethi Shetty (Pandey); the film focuses on his downfall and subsequent resurgence.
In 2019, it was remade in Hindi as ‘Kabir Singh’ and in Tamil as ‘Adithya Varma’, marking the acting debut of Vikram’s son Dhruv Vikram.
