Tollywood film, Arjun Reddy with hero Vijay Deverkonda in a new look, and directed by Sandeep Vanga had been a super hit. The film is being remade in Tamil and Hindi. While it is smooth sailing for the team in Tamil, the same is not the case with Bollywood. The film is being directed by Sandeep himself. However, they are unable to decide on the lead actors. At first Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor were consulted, but both dropped out. Finally Shahid Kapoor accepted the role. In the meantime, the heroine dropped out in the last minute.
