While there were reports of Arjun Kapoor being ready to play Reddy, a Mumbai Mirror article now says that it could well be Shahid Kapoor instead.

The reporter at the Indian Express even managed a quote from Kapoor on the recent interaction. “I’m very excited that it might come to me. That it might happen. You will hear an official announcement if anything happens,” said Kapoor. Also talking about the director Sandeep Venga’s confirmation to cast him in the film, Kapoor said, “He also thinks I’m the right choice?”
Earlier a source close to the film told Mumbai Mirror that the film is scheduled to go on the floors in July and the team is on a hunt for the female lead. The source further added that the plan is to shoot in India and abroad.
The original Arjun Reddy had Vijay Devarakonda as the male lead, and was the debut film for its female lead Shalini Pandey.
