Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga made a striking debut with the blockbuster Telugu film, Arjun Reddy that starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey in the lead roles. The film gave the breakthrough for both Sandeep and Vijay. The success of the film paved the way for its remake in other languages and the Hindi remake was helmed by Sandeep himself. Titled as Kabir Singh, the film starred Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani in the lead roles. Despite getting mixed reviews from the critics, Kabir Singh turned out to be one of the biggest blockbusters in Hindi cinema’s history. The film collected over 350 crores at the box office and it surprised a lot of trade experts and theatre exhibitors.

Meanwhile, exciting details about Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s next film is revealed and it looks like an interesting project is on cards.

It is said that Sandeep is currently giving final touches to the script and the project will take shape when the lockdown gets uplifted.

Talking to Mumbai Mirror, producer Murad Khetani was quoted as saying, “The script is locked. Before the lockdown brought everything to a standstill, Sandeep was writing and looking to narrate it to the actors in May or June. He is in Hyderabad right now and once things get back to normal, the narrations will happen and we will proceed with the casting. There is no title yet. All I can say is that it is an intense gangster drama. I am waiting to hear the final narration." It is said that Ranbir Kapoor really liked the idea of the film and asked Sandeep to develop it. We will get more clarity on this project in the coming months.
