Rumour mills claim that UTV Motion Pictures, which had acquired the Hindi remake rights of Arya, had offered the Hindi film to Salman Khan. But the actor turned down the proposal for the reasons best known to him.
It is believed that Salman Khan is not keen to act in the remakes, as he has been doing since a few years. Recently, he was seen in the remakes of Ready, Bodyguard and Kick Hindi version is on its way.
However, Arya starred Allu Arjun and Anu Mehta in the lead roles. It was directed by Sukumar and produced by Dil Raju.
