|Now as Boney Kapoor has acquired the rights of Hindi remake of the South hit Okkadu, who else than his son Arjun Kapoor to play the lead role. Earlier it was said that Arjun’s producer-dad was waiting for his son’s dates, but the beta was too busy to do the movie. Finally, Arjun is doing the film with his father.
Since the single-word titles work better for movies nowadays, the makers have decided to name Arjun Kapoor’s film Tevar. It’s learnt that Boney Kapoor got the title Tevar from Yash Raj Films.
“Boney Kapoor wanted the title 'Tevar', which he realised was with YRF as it was a favourite of Yashji's. When Arjun told Adi (Aditya) that they were keen to name the film ‘Tevar', he gave him the title without any further delay,” a source is quoted as saying.
In the movie Tevar, Arjun will be seen as an Agra-boy, who is a Kabaddi champ, and guess who he is going to romance? The heroine of the masses, Sonakshi Sinha.
The movie will soon go on the floors as Arjun Kapoor is almost done with his projects Gunday, Finding Fanny Fernandes and 2 States. Tevar will be directed by the debutant Amit Sharma. Sharma has just struck gold with his much-appreciated Google Search Reunion ad.
Since the movie is the remake of a South hit, it will pack fun and action like regular pot-boilers Bollywood is churning out nowadays.
