Kiara Advani to play ‘Preeti’ in Shahid Kapoor-starrer Arjun Reddy

Bollywood actress Kiara Advani who made headlines for her role in Lust Stories opposite Vicky Kaushal, has been roped in to play the titular role of Preeti in Hindi remake of Telugu hit Arjun Reddy. Shahid Kapoor will play the lead Arjun Reddy in the film. The Batti Gul Meter Chalu actor confirmed the news on his Twitter, welcoming her to the madness.

"Welcome to the madness @Advani_Kiara aka Preeti. Team Arjun Reddy is now officially complete. Let's do this," wrote the Udta Punjab star.

Kiara Advani debuted in Bollywood with 2014 comedy film Fugly, however, she shot to fame after her role in MS Dhoni: An Untold Story. Last, she was seen in Telugu film Bharat Ane Nenu starring Mahesh Babu.

The original version of Arjun Reddy starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey in lead roles. The film gyrated around two medical college students Arjun and Preeti, who fall in love despite the caste barriers. When Preeti is forced to marry someone else, Arjun seeks refuge in alcohol and one night stands to get rid of her memories.

The flick which went on floors in August will hit the theatres on June 21 next year.

Shahid was last seen in comedy-drama 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' which did not have an impressive start at the box office on its first weekend. Set in Uttarakhand, the film deals with the issues of electricity theft and inflated electricity bills.
