Did you know Arjun Reddy's ending was originally different? Director Sandeep Reddy Vanga spills the beans
Sandeep Reddy Vanga recently revealed that the conclusion of his debut film, Arjun Reddy was originally meant to be slightly different.
After Arjun Reddy and Kabir Singh, director Sandeep Reddy Vanga is all geared up for his next venture Animal featuring Ranbir Kapoor in lead role. The director along with the cast and crew has been leaving no stone unturned to promote his upcoming film. In the latest, the director revealed that the conclusion of his debut film was originally meant to be slightly different.
For the unversed, Arjun Reddy starring Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey ended on happy note. The two lovers Arjun and Preethi united following a long separation after he gets to know that she is pregnant with her child. However, the director had not originally planned this conclusion. In a recent interview, the director revealed, "(It was always meant) to be the same ending. Except that she doesn't return home. He (Arjun Reddy) would be waiting at the park every day and her Yoga sessions would be on and we see the end titles rolling up," he told to a media outlet.
Further, Vanga added, "That is one climax. Another climax is she (Preethi) would be enduring labour pains and he would deliver the baby, because he is a doctor. But because of the budget constraints I had at the time, I could not afford to set up an OT (operation theatre) to shoot that ending.” However, both Arjun Reddy and its Hindi remake Kabir Singh turned out to be huge successes at the box office.
Meanwhile, Vanga’s upcoming film Animal revolves around the complex relationship between a father-son duo. The film marks his second outing in Hindi Cinema and also stars Anil Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, Bobby Deol, Shakti Kapoor, and Triptii Dimri among others. Backed by T-series, Cine1Studio and Bhadrakali Pictures, the film is nearly three-and-a-half-hour-long and is set to release in theatres on December 1
