Shahid Kapoor has finally found his leading lady. After Tara Sutaria stepped out of Arjun Reddy Remake, the makers have brought MS Dhoni actress Kiara Advani on-board. Kiara Advani confirmed the news to Bombay Times and said, “Arjun Reddy has always been one of my favourite films. There are so many shades to the heroine’s character; I’m very excited about this opportunity.” Shahid Kapoor took to social media and welcomed the actress on-board and wrote, “Welcome to the madness  @Advani_Kiara  aka Preeti. Team Arjun Reddy is now officially complete. Let’s do this."

Arjun Reddy which is being helmed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga told the daily, “Kiara is the perfect choice to play the female lead in our film. She has the right combination of innocence and maturity, and that’s important for the character.”

Coming to Tara’s exit from the project, the actor’s debut was pushed from November 23 to May 10, 2019. That would have meant that Arjun Reddy remake would have had to wait until mid-next year which wasn’t possible.

A source close to the makers had told Deccan Chronicle, “Eventually, the makers of the film and Tara’s managers amicably decided to part ways because of the delay caused. It is for this reason that the makers of the Arjun Reddy remake decided to let go of Tara and look for another actress. They have finalised a couple of options and will be announcing the name in the next few days.”
