Remaking South’s films is not a new thing in Bollywood. However, the fans are most awaited for the remake of South superstar Allu Arjun’s Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, released in 2020. Well, the wait is almost over as actor Kartik Aaryan is all set for the remake of his Telugu film. Ala Vaikuntapurramuloo was a super-duper hit in Telugu and its songs have also made tremendous headlines. Now the Hindi remake of the Telugu film directed by Trivikram Srinivas is coming called Shehzada and in this he will be seen with Kriti Sanon.
Ala Vaikuntapurramuloo remake by Rohit Dhawan
While many fans are waiting for the release of the film, many others have expressed concern that Bollywood is focusing more attention on remake films than coming up with original content. However, now Karthik claims that there is nothing to worry as the upcoming remake of the Telugu film has a ‘new identity’. During a recent interview, Kartik Aaryan talked about feeling ‘no pressure’ on remaking a Telugu film. Meanwhile, he also praised filmmaker Rohit Dhawan’s craft and also praised superstar Allu Arjun’s superhit performance in ‘Ala Vaikunthapuramulu’.
Karthik shared the experience of working with Rohit Dhawan
Speaking about doing Shehzada remake of Ala Vaikuntapuramulu, Kartik Aaryan said, ‘I just don’t take that pressure. I am not thinking about whether I should do something that has been done there i.e. in the South film industry. Those questions don’t bother me…I loved working with Rohit Dhawan.’ He also said that he enjoyed working with Rohit Dhawan in ‘Shehzada’. He said, ‘He is like my brother and the way he has given his all to the film… I don’t think there will be any other director who will do justice to this film as Rohit has done.’
Karthik claims, the prince will have a new identity
He further concluded by claiming that his upcoming film Shahzada has a new identity and nothing has been taken from Allu’s action drama film. Now it will be known after the release of the film how similar the Hindi remake is to Pushpa Star. Also, it has to be seen whether Karthik’s film will also perform at the box office as much as Ala Vaikuntapurramuloo did. Shahzada will be released in theaters on 4 November 2022. Film
