The 2020 Telugu superhit action film ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’ is going to be remade for two languages – Hindi and Tamil. While there hasn’t been much news on the Tamil remake’s front for months, the Hindi remake has already found a director, leading man and now, it looks like the leading lady has been found as well. Rohit Dhawan is expected to helm this project with Karthik Aryan in the lead role, while Kriti Sanon is currently talking with the producers of the Hindi remake of ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo’, to join the project.
Kriti Sanon has expressed her interest in the script and wants to join the project, but there might be a scheduling conflict for the actress that might interfere with this plan. The actress is currently in the process of shooting the Varun Dhawan starrer Bhediya and then she will move onto the T-Series produced Ramayan epic, Adipurush which will star Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan. The actress is currently trying to shuffle her shooting dates so as to be a part of the project, but the production house is currently looking at two other actresses, in the case Kriti Sanon won’t be able to join the action drama remake. The project is expected to start shooting by June, so the leading woman will have to be locked in by mid-April.
