Bollywood's top director and producer Karan Johar was one of the first audiences for Vijay Devarakonda's 'Dear Comrade'. Karan, who is most keen about South films, made an official announcement that he has acquired the rights of the film and he will remake in Hindi soon. Karan made it official after watching the film along with actor and producers ahead of the release.
According to our reports from B-town, Karan Johar has paid a whopping Rs 6 Cr to get remake rights of Dear Comrade. The trade analysts also feel that it is a record for any South film, which never fetched such a huge amount. Not even the commercial blockbusters like Temper and Muni-2 have garnered such big money.
Considering that Vijay's previous remake 'Arjun Reddy' minted a spectacular 275+ Cr in Bollywood, it is not surprising to see such a huge demand for his projects. Apart from Karan, other producers who're reportedly aimed at Dear Comrade rights were Sajid Nadiadwala, Bhushan Kumar, Murad Khetani and Vijay Galani. In the past, rumor indicated that Vijay might make his Bollywood debut with this remake, but the latest reports suggest Jhanvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khattar are in talks to reprise the roles of Vijay and Rashmika as leads.
