It was a shocking decision by the producers. They announced today that the Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy directed by popular director Bala will be scrapped completely. The makers also said that they will shot the entire film once again with another director.
Creative and other differences was a reason cited by E4 Entertainments who are remaking this film. Actor Vikram's son Dhruv Vikram was to be introduced in this film under the direction of Bala. Now the whole film will be re-shot again.
Their statement read, "We at E4 Entertainment are not at all happy with the final version handed over to us and due to various creative and other differences, we have decided not to release this version. Instead we will start afresh, and shoot a new Tamil version of “Arjun Reddy”, with Dhruv as the main lead by staying true to the soul and intention of the original.
Official announcements regarding the new cast and crew including director will be made shortly.
Despite this unfortunate turn of events which has cost us heavily, our love for wanting to see this cult film in Tamil has not diminish in any way. We will therefore work tirelessly as a new united team towards a June 2019 release.
We seek your continued support and blessings as we take up this journey."
