Bollywood top filmmaker Karan Johar watched Vijay Devarakonda’s Dear Comrade in a special screening and decided to remake the film in Hindi. There are speculations that Karan Johar paid Rs 6 crores to acquire the remake rights of the film which is untrue. Vijay Devarakonda reprising the role in Hindi too is not true as the actor did not offer any such commitment. Karan Johar was always keen to introduce actors like Prabhas and Vijay Devarakonda to Hindi audience as they gained enough stardom.
Now with Dear Comrade’s poor show down South and Vijay Devarakonda not ready to play his role in the remake, Karan Johar decided to shelve the project. Karan Johar wanted to share the profits of the remake to Mythri Movie Makers and no agreements have been inked as of now. Hence, Karan Johar would focus on other projects as the remake of Dear Comrade would make no sense as of now.
