Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna’s Dear Comrade is all set to hit screens on July 26. The film, directed by Bharat Kamma, is being released in all four south Indian languages. The film will be soon remade in Hindi with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions bankrolling the film. In a social media post on Tuesday evening, Karan Johar announced the official remake of Dear Comrade in Hindi.

Appreciating Vijay’s and Rashmika’s performances in the movie, Karan Johar wrote in the post that he had the pleasure to be the first person to watch the movie. “What a powerful and intense love story. The film is exceptionally moving and leaves you with an important and relevant message,” the director wrote.

He also lauded debut director Bharat Kamma’s efforts and Justin Prabhakaran’s exceptional music for the film. “Glad to announce that @dharmamovies will be producing the Hindi remake of Dear Comrade. Super excited for this,” he added.

There were rumours earlier that plans were on for Karan Johar to remake Nani’s Jersey in Bollywood, but now we hear that the plan has been dropped.

Dear Comrade will be the second film that will have Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna playing the lead pair. The trailer of the film was released earlier this month and it seems that Vijay is back on screen as the angry young man after his 2017 blockbuster Arjun Reddy.

In Dear Comrade, Vijay Deverakonda will be playing a student leader with a communist background while Rashmika Mandanna will be seen as a cricketer playing for Telangana state. According to reports, Rashmika Mandanna has worked hard to get into the skin of the character by learning the nuances of cricket. She underwent special training at the cricket club in Hyderabad before the shoot began.
