Salman Refuses Allu Arjun's Arya 2

While most Bollywood A-listers are completely sold on South remakes, Salman Khan does not believe in the herd syndrome. Probably, Khan had enough of South replicas after his 2011 blockbusters Ready and Bodyguard. When approached for the remake of another South flick Arya 2 by UTV, Khan categorically said 'No.'

An industry-insider told Mumbai Mirror, "UTV wanted Salman. They even held a screening of Arya 2 for him. But, later, Salman declined the offer."

Trade circles were buzzing about Khan's involvement in this UTV project for the last couple of months. However, the insider added, "It's definitely true that Salman won't star in Arya 2. Nobody is aware of his reason for refusing the film."

Arya 2 is a 2009 Telugu romantic sequel to the 2004 superhit Arya, starring Allu Arjun. Arya 2 saw Allu Arjun paired with Kajal Aggarwal of Singham fame. Director Sukumar was the captain of both the ships.

After all, this is not the first time that Khan has said no to a South Indian remake. Earlier, he refused Mahesh Babu's Hindi remake of Dookudu. Apparently, Khan wasn't keen on playing a cop for the sixth time in Dookudu.
