There are reports of 2018 ’s most promising newcomer Ishaan Khattar being in the remake of last year’s Telugu hit Geetha Govindham. The original starred Telugu cinema’s fastest-rising superstar Vijay Deverakonda.

And now the talk of the remake with Ishaan? Turns out, it is all dart-throwing in the dark. The Dhadak actor completely denies any such plan.
“No, I am not doing that project,” says Ishaan Khatter
Vijay Devarakonda says he’s okay with any actor who does the remake. “My film, Arjun Reddy is being done in Hindi with Shahid Kapoor. I’ve always liked his work. I would like to see what he does with Arjun Reddy. I am sure he will bring something fresh to the table. Whether it’s Arjun Reddy or Geetha Govindam, doing their Hindi remake is really cool.”
According to Vijay, Geetha Govindam requires an actor who can portray innocence vulnerability and some mischief. How about Vijay in the remake?
“Nooooo! If and when I do a Hindi film it won’t be a remake. That’s going down the same road again, which I never want to do. I’ve already given what I had to give to Arjun Reddy and Geetha Govindham. Doing a remake would be repetitive. I’d rather do something original in Hindi.”
