The Hindi remake will also be of the same name. Pankaj Kapoor will also be a pivotal role in the film. Reports state that he will be playing Shahid’s mentor in the film.
A source close to an online portal stated, “Shahid will start shooting from December and will continue the shoot till 30th. The team will then take a four – five day break for New Year and then resume shoot in Chandigarh for the rest of the month. There is going to be a lot of movement from the team’s side in and out of Chandigarh in the coming months.”
Gowtam Tinnanauri who directed the original Telugu film will helm this one too. The original one was a success at the box office and a profitable venture for the makers. Allu Aravind, Aman Gill & Dil Raju will back the film. It’s slated to release on 28th August 2020.
