Kartik Aaryan or Ranveer Singh to frontline the Hindi remake of Allu Arjun's 'Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo'?
A few months ago, reports of Kartik Aaryan signing the Hindi remake of Allu Arjun's blockbuster Telugu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo did the rounds. While there is no official announcement made regarding the same, it is believed that producer Ashwin Varde has acquired the rights of this Trivikram Srinivas directorial. Now, in the latest development surrounding the remake, it is being reported that Ranveer Singh is also being considered for the lead role. According to the report of a publication, the makers of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo's Hindi remake feel that Ranveer suits the role. A trade source told the daily that age will play an important role while deciding the lead.
"Ranveer suits the role perfectly and the makers are looking at casting him. But one school of thought is to also cast the much younger Kartik Aaryan. Now Allu is 37, Ranveer is 34 and Kartik is just 29. Hence, the makers are slightly tilted towards Ranveer, more so after how he had his own interpretation of the character in Simmba," the trade source told.

Workwise, Kartik was shooting for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Dostana 2 before the lockdown was announced. He was last seen in Imtiaz Ali's Love Aaj Kal. Ranveer, on the other hand, is waiting for his sports drama '83 to release. Apart from that, he has Jayeshbhai Jordaar and Takht.
