Like father, like son. Actor Vikram’s son Dhruv is following in his father’s footsteps and he is all set to take the acting plunge. On Sunday, it was officially announced that the youngster, whose dashing looks have already become a selling point, will be making his acting debut with the Tamil remake of recent Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy

Vikram announced the news via Instagram and said that Dhruv is ready to take the leap. The project will be bankrolled by E4 Entertainment, producers of films such as Ezra and Godha, and its producer Mukesh Mehta is honoured by the opportunity. In a Facebook post, he thanked Vikram for having faith in them and letting them launch his son.

On several occasions, Vikram had hinted that his son will eventually enter the industry. However, even he wasn’t sure whether he’d be interested in acting or direction. Last year, Dhruv directed a short film called Goodnight Charlie, and it was about child abuse within a family. When the film came out, many assumed that he has directorial dreams and would enter the industry as a director. It’s surprising that he has decided to don the greasepaint and it won’t be an easy debut considering the high expectations people will have on the remake, thanks to the popularity of Arjun Reddy.

The director and the rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised for the remake. The project is slated to go on the floors from December. Arjun Reddy is a contemporary take on Devdas, and it portrayed love and suffering in its most raw and honest form, winning over audiences across all classes. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, Arjun Reddy starred Vijay Devarakonda and Shalini Patel in the lead.
