Vijay Deverakonda’s recent release in Telugu films, ‘Dear Comrade’ will soon be remade in Hindi, under Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. Reportedly the filmmaker wanted to star the original actor in his hindi remake and offered a whopping amount of Rs. 40 crore to him.
The South superstar politely declined the offer as he was not interested in playing the same character again.
Meanwhile, there were reports that the ‘Dhadak’ pair Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter would reunite for the Hindi remake of this film, but Karan dismissed all such rumours in a recent tweet and clarified that no cast members are decided yet. He wrote,
“All the best and big success to the team of #DearComradeOnJuly26th ! Also a CLARIFICATION! No lead actors have been considered or approached for the film as yet! The planning for this lovely film is underway!,”
Karan Johar has paid an amount of Rs 6 crore to acquire the Hindi remake rights of ‘Dear Comrade’ in a recent auction, post a special screening of the film before its release. Which was attended by Bollywood’s eminent producers like Sajid Nadiadwala, Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani and Vijay Galani. Karan Johar apparently acquired the right by paying the highest amount ever paid to buy the remake rights of any Telugu film.
