Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who also helmed the original critically-acclaimed Telugu-language blockbuster, will go on floors next month.

The announcement was made on the official Twitter handle of T-Series, which is producing the film:

The original film revolved around a medical student who falls in love with his junior and how their relationship evolves.
The film featured Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey in lead roles. The movie faced criticism from several quarters for being regressive but was lauded for its honest portrayal of the title character.

Apart from the Hindi one, Arjun Reddy is also going to be officially remade in Tamil titled Varma, which will feature newcomer Megha opposite Dhruv Vikram.
