Kiara Advani has been making headlines since the release of web series Lust Stories. Now she has been roped in to play the role of Preeti in Shahid Kapoor starrer Arjun Reddy.

Shahid Kapoor shared the news on Twitter and said that he is happy to have her in the team and finally the team of Arjun Reddy is complete.

Kiara Advani has been in news ever since she made her debut in Bollywood with the comedy film Fugly in 2014, and then she shot to fame with her film MS Dhoni: An Untold Story. She has also worked in Telugu film Bharat Ane Nenu opposite Mahesh Babu.

Arjun Reddy originally starred Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey in pivotal roles. The story is about two lovers who come from a different cast and fall in love. However, the story takes a turn when Preeti is forced to marry someone else. To forget Preeti, Arjun indulges in alcohol and one-night stands.

The Hindi remake of Arjun Reddy will have Shahid Kapoor essaying the role of Arjun, and Kiara Advani would be seen as Preeti. Shahid recent release, comedy-drama ‘Batti Gul Meter Chalu’ has not had an impressive start and has not been able to attract the audiences. However, with his next film, he would surely want it to be a great success.
