MEET THE PRODUCER WHO CRACKED ARJUN REDDY
Most of Bollywood’s topmost producers had their eyes set on the Hindi remake rights of the Telugu super-hit Arjun Reddy. Murad Khetani is the lucky man who finally cracked the deal. “It didn’t happen overnight,” he reveals. “I was working on it for the last five months.” Khetani had a series of meetings with the Telugu film’s producers in Hyderabad before the deed was actually signed. “They just wanted their film to be in the right hands. The film has received so much of love and appreciation. I promised them that we would treat it responsibly.” According to Khetani, Arjun Reddy could be a game-changer in Bollywood too. “That is why we have to have the right actor playing the lead part.” He is currently working out the details of the production with director Sandeep Vanga and a major announcement is expected soon.
