Arjun Kapoor to star in Premam Hindi remake?
Alphonse Puthren’s Premam is unarguably one of the most popular Malayalam movies in recent years. Releasing in 2015, the Nivin Pauly starrer emerged as a huge sensation across the South. It was later remade in Telugu with Naga Chaitanya in the lead. If latest reports are to be believed, Arjun Kapoor has been signed for the Hindi remake of Premam.
Abhishek Kapoor, who has made movies like Rock On, Kai Po Che and Fitoor, will be remaking Premam in Hindi. Reportedly, Abhishek has already started working on its script while simultaneously helming Kedarnath, his upcoming directorial based on the 2013 floods that stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan. More details regarding Premam’s remake are expected to be revealed in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Arjun Kapoor has three big projects coming up – Namastey England, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Panipat. He has also committed for the remake of last year’s superhit Telugu movie Arjun Reddy. Though Shahid Kapoor was also in talks for the movie, the project eventually came to Arjun. If he has indeed signed for Premam remake, this will be his third South Indian remake after Tevar (Gilli remake) and Arjun Reddy. Stay tuned for more updates.
