After Kabir Singh, Shahid Kapoor In Another Telugu Remake



The spectacular  success  of Kabir Singh  has made Shahid Kapoor hungry for more material sourced  from the  South Indian languages .

We   now hear Shahid is keen to do a  Hindi version of  the Telugu hit Jersey directed  by Gowtham Tinnanuri which tells  the story  of a failed cricketer  and his  bonding with his  young son.The  Nani starrer  was  a  huge success and a Hindi remake seemed  just what the  boxoffice ordered.

If all goes well, Shahid would be  stepping into Nani’s  shoes  as soon as all the  economic and  creative   logistics  are worked out.

Says a  source  close to  development, “Shahid  is  keenly  looking  at doing the  Telugu film Jersey in  Hindi. But  the  producers  want  to do  the  Hindi remake  with  the  original  Telugu director. This  should not be  a problem.Shahid knows   Kabir Singh worked so spectacularly  because  the original director was  retained  for the Hindi version.”

Weirdly  the  original Telugu superstar  invariably  opts   out  of  the Hindi remake. Ravi Teja was not even considered  for  the Hindi  remake of Kick .Salman Khan  took over. Vijay Deverakonda had  no  ambitions of encoring his  role in Arjun Reddy. That’s how Shahid  stepped in  to the Hindi remake. Nani  too,  like MaheshBabu,  seems happy being the  king of Telugu cinema  with no burning ambitions  to take  on  Bollywood.

That’s how Shahid Kapoor will  end up doing another  blockbuster remake.
