Ekta Kapoor and Rohit Dhawan have come together for the first time to remake the Telugu blockbuster ‘Ala Vaikunthapuramaloo’.
The film will star Kartik Aaryan in the lead along with Kriti Sanon. The duo has already done a film together called ‘Luka Chuppi’. According to sources, Kriti Sanon will be playing Tollywood actress Pooja Hegde’s role from the original. The makers were going to cast Tabu initially to play the lead’s mother but they wanted to look for another actress since the duo have already worked in ‘Bhool Bhulaiya 2’ together (Kartik and Tabu). Hence, they approached actress Manisha Koirala.
Manisha Koirala will be acting as Kartik Aaryan’s mother in the Hindi remake. The shooting is expected to begin this year itself and the makers are planning to release it in 2022. The actress Manisha Koirala’s last few films were ‘Maska’ and ‘Sanju’. She also starred in the Hindi/Tamil film ’99 Songs’. Meanwhile, Kartik Aaryan’s last performance was in Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Love Aaj Kal’ whereas Kriti Sanon’s upcoming films are ‘Hum Do Hamare Do’ and ‘Bachchan Pandey’.
