Recently, there were reports that Janhvi Kapoor was offered the role opposite Shahid Kapoor in the remake of Telugu hit film Arjun Reddy. However, despite being the original choice for the film, she turned it down and that's when Tara Sutari who is making her debut in 'Student Of the Year 2' was roped in.

So now its, Tara opposite Shahid and the duo will be stepping into the shoes of Vijay Devarakonda and Shalini Pandey respectively.

Now we hear that it was Karan Johar who asked Janhvi to drop the film.

If reports are to be believed, Janhvi was in talks with the makers but then KJo insisted that she does not take up this project and that's when she rejected it. The reason for this is touted to be, Karan does not want Janhvi to be a part of 'masala' action films at this point in her career.

An insider has been quoted by a popular daily, "Karan wants her to do glamorous roles, like the one in Dhadak. He suggested Tara's name, who he thought was a better choice for Arjun Reddy."

'Arjun Reddy' that will be helmed by Sandeep Vanga, revolves around a hot-headed surgeon (Vijay Deverakonda in the eponymous role), who goes on a path of self-destruction after the love of his life, Preethi (Shalini Pandey), marries someone else.

During his interview with PTI, Shahid had revealed that he was nervous as well as excited about doing his first remake. "I've actually seen the film and loved both the lead actors and all the actors in the film; so there is this huge responsibility of a film that has achieved cult status and we want to make it as well if not better."
