Rajkummar Rao signs up for remake of Telugu thriller ‘HIT’ | Hindi Movie News


South remakes are a rage in Bollywood and the latest celebrity to join the bandwagon is Rajkummar Rao. The actor has signed up to essay the lead in Telugu cop thriller ‘HIT’, which stands for Homicide Intervention Team. The Hindi version will be directed by Sailesh Kolanu, who had also helmed the original Telugu film. ‘Hit’ narrates the story of a police officer who is on the trail of a missing woman.

Speaking about the venture, Rajkummar Rao told Mumbai Mirror, “When I saw ‘HIT’, I instantly connected with it. It’s an engaging story, relevant in today’s environment. As an actor, I am always on the look out to play characters I haven’t explored and ‘HIT’ gives me a chance to do that. I’m looking forward to take this journey with Sailesh and (producer) Dil Raju,” said Rajkummar.

Interestingly, the makers of ‘HIT’ are planning a sequel in Telugu and may replicate the success in Bollywood too. Sharing about the same, director Sailesh stated, “Yes, I see ‘HIT’ has the potential to be a successful franchise in Bollywood too. I feel the premise of ‘HIT’ is very global. Of course, I will be making very minor changes to suit the sensibilities of the audience all over India. The idea is to create a realistic world of crime and investigation and put a bunch of beautifully flawed and grey characters in that world. And then let multiple stories unfold within that world.”
