The remake is the trend in Bollywood for quite a long time now but the super success of Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh guarantees that more remakes are on its way. Recently, even before the release, filmmaker and producer Karan Johar acquired Hindi remake rights of Vijay Deverakonda’s Dear Comrade.
Apparently, Vijay Deverakonda was approached for Hindi remake of Dear Comrade with an amount of 40 crores being offered. However, the south star turned down the proposal.
Now, as a report in Mumbai Mirror states, even Shahid Kapoor was asked to play a lead role in the remake but he declined it. The reason behind it is learnt that the actor doesn’t want to do another remake of Vijay Deverakonda.
While the speculations are doing rounds regarding the leading face ever since Karan Johar bagged the rights of Dear Comrade, the filmmaker recently clarified that no lead actors have been considered or approached for the Hindi remake of the film.
A day before the release of Vijay starrer, the filmmaker tweeted: “All the best and big success to the team of ‘Dear Comrade‘ on July 26! Also a clarification! No lead actors have been considered or approached for the film as yet.”
All the best and big success to the team of #DearComradeOnJuly26th ! Also a CLARIFICATION! No lead actors have been considered or approached for the film as yet! The planning for this lovely film is underway!

Karan stressed that the planning for the film is still work in progress.
On July 24, Karan announced he will be producing the Hindi remake of actor Vijay Deverakonda’s forthcoming Telugu film “Dear Comrade“.
After attending the special screening of “Dear Comrade“, Karan took to Twitter on Tuesday to praise the film.
