The announcement of a remake before the official release of the original movie has happened in the past. Thuppakki and its Bollywood remake Holiday come to mind immediately. Now, we have Dear Comrade joining an elusive list.
The remake rights of Dear Comrade starring Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna has been snapped up by Karan Johar days before the official release of the movie in Telugu. The decision was made after the producer was screened a special show by Mythri Movie Makers and its hero Vijay Deverakonda.
Karan Johar has made a grand announcement praising the movie, its lead, director and music director to the skies. While similar sky-high praises are common in Bollywood, that too from Karan Johar, it is not every day that he does the same for a Telugu movie.
As of now, only the remake has been announced. We are yet to know details about the cast and crew. The overwhelming joyous response of Vijay Deverakonda makes one suspicious if he is going to be part of it, though. In the past, he didn’t act in Kabir Singh, the remake of Arjun Reddy that became national wide phenomena.
With just three days remaining for the release of Dear Comrade, the remake announcement couldn’t have come at the right time.
