The 2020 romantic drama Dia changed the fortunes of its three lead cast members, namely Dheekshith Shetty, who played Rohith, Kushee Ravi, the title character Dia, and Pruthvi Ambaar, as Aadi. While all three are doing immensely well in their film careers with projects across languages, one definitely stands for the simple reason of being in the Hindi and Marathi remakes of Dia.
It has been reported earlier that Pruthvi is reprising his character in the Hindi remake of Dia, directed by KS Ashok, who made the original film. Turns out, Ashok is helming the Marathi version too and, he’s got Pruthvi to be a part of this version as well. The team is currently shooting pivotal scenes at a hospital in Bengaluru. The Marathi remake, we hear, will be shot across locations in Bengaluru, Mysuru and Mangaluru. While Ritika Shrotri gets Kushree’s role, Ajinkya Raut takes on Dheekshith’s character. The Hindi version has Mihika Kushwaha and Ujjwal Sharma along with Pruthvi. The Telugu remake of Dia, Dear Megha, had Megha Akash, Adith Arun and Arjun Somayajalu in the lead.
Dia, which released shortly before the pandemic broke in 2020, follows Dia, an introvert with a crush for her college senior Rohith. While she cannot muster the courage to tell him how she feels about him, they meet again as professionals in Mumbai and hit it off. When they then meet with an unfortunate accident, in which Rohith succumbs to injuries, she sees no purpose in her survival and attempts to take her life, only to be saved in the nick of time by Aadi.
Over time, Aadi brings Dia quite literally back to life and just when things go well for them and she begins to have feelings for him, Rohith returns. Will Dia go back to Rohith or will she find happiness with Aadi – this forms the rest of the narrative.
