Kiara Advani is all geared up for her big release with Kabir Singh. The actress stars as the lead in the remake of the hit Telugu film Arjun Reddy which released in 2017. And while the starlet is excited about the Hindi remake releasing this week, she spoke quite candidly about the original Arjun Reddy, Telugu actor Vijay Deverakonda.
The young South star has become a national heartthrob thanks to the film and just like all his female fans, Kiara is also smitten by Deverakonda. In our exclusive conversation with the actress recently, we asked her if she had watched Arjun Reddy before she signed Kabir Singh and she said, “I saw the film before I signed it and I loved it. I was in love with Vijay Deverakonda.”
When we prodded her more about her affection for Deverakonda, she shared, “I was, like, I want to meet him. Even though he is so flawed, and this is wrong, and you cannot be drinking and doing all those things but we all want someone who love us like that. I became a fan after the film and I think he performed so beautifully in that film.”
Kiara even bumped into Vijay recently at a style award show in the city and the two bonded over the film. We wonder now what the real Arjun Reddy thinks about this version of his Preeti.
