He has roped in his own son Arjun Kapoor in place of Varun Tej to co-star with Venkatesh.
Director Anil Ravipudi, currently basking in the success of his new Telugu film Sarileru Neekevvaru says he has nothing to do with the Hindi remake of his last year’s blockbuster comedy F2: Fun and Frustration (also starring Tamannaah and Mehreen) which featured Venkatesh and Varun Tej as a pair of con-men. The Hindi remake rights have been bought by Boney Kapoor. He has roped in his own son Arjun Kapoor in place of Varun Tej to co-star with Venkatesh. Anees Bazmi will direct the Hindi remake.
Speaking on the remake Anil Ravipudi reasons, “Why would I want to go back to doing the same story again? I am not involved with the Hindi remake of F2 at all. I am now working on sequel to F2 titled F3.”
While Vankatesh and Varun Tej will return to F3 to essay their roles of Venky and Varun (we wonder if the character ‘Varun’ will be changed to ‘Arjun’ in the Hindi remake), one more Telugu star will be added in F3.
