Kiara, who was most recently seen in Netflix's "Lust Stories", will essay the role of Shahid's love interest.
"'Arjun Reddy' has always been one of my favorite films. There are so many shades to the heroine's character; I'm very excited about it," Kiara said in a statement here.
"Kiara epitomizes the female character in the film to the T. She has the perfect combination of innocence (in terms of looks) and maturity (in terms of performance) that's so important for the character," Vanga said.
The remake will be produced by T-Series and Cine1 Studios.
