Southern moviegoers are all waiting with a lot of excitement for the release of Telugu film: Dear Comrade, that stars Vijay Devarakonda. Now Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar wants to see Hindi moviegoers feel the same excitement. This director-producer just made an official announcement that he will be remaking the film in Hindi.
Karan watched the flick with its male lead Vijay, and immediately took to his social media to confirm the film’s Bollywood remake. As expected he will be producing the film under his home banner i.e. Dharma Productions. Post his meeting with Vijay Devarakonda, he made an official announcement that he has brought the rights to the film.
Karan instagrammed a pic with Vijay and captioned it with words,
“Had the pleasure to be the first to see #dearcomrade ! What a powerful and intense love story !!! Top notch performances by @thedeverakonda and @rashmika_mandanna !! The film is exceptionally moving and leaves you with such an important and relevant message! Strongly directed by debut director @bharatkamma and wonderfully produced by @mythriofficial !! Exceptional music by #justinprabhakaran.”
He further added, “Glad to ANNOUNCE that @dharmamovies will be producing the Hindi remake of #dearcomrade !! Super excited about this!!!” (sic)
Dear Comrade will be the second flick that stars Vijay Devarakonda to be remade in Hindi. His first one was Arjun Reddy. The sole difference here was that unlike Dear Comrade where he will be cast in the Hindi version too. In Arjun Reddy’s Hindi version, i.e. Kabir Singh, it was Shahid Kapoor playing the male lead and Kiara Advani was the female lead.
The flick that was released last month, has turned out to be the biggest blockbuster of the year till now. But it had its own set of controversies to deal with as it was seen to be misogynistic and promoting a violent and sexist take on love.
