Rajkummar Rao will be essaying the role of a cop in the upcoming crime thriller film.
After Rajkummar Rao, Sanya Malhotra has been roped in to play the lead in the Hindi remake of the Telugu flick, HIT. The film is produced by T-Series and Dil Raju Productions, while Dr Sailesh Kolanu is directing it. Talking about HIT, which is the short form for Homicide Intervention Team, the film is about a cop who is on the trail of a missing woman. The Telugu film HIT originally starred Vishwak Sen and Ruhani Sharma as the protagonists.
Meanwhile, sharing her excitement about the project, Sanya said in a statement that she’s watched the original HIT and had liked the concept of the film. So when the remake was offered to her, she immediately gave her nod to it. “It is a very interesting and intriguing story that deserves a mass audience,” said the Ludo actor, adding that she’s looking forward to the film and is extremely excited to work with Rajkummar Rao.
As of now HIT remake is in the pre-production stage and is expected to go on floors soon. The Telugu film released in theatres in 2020 and is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
When Rajkummar came on board for the film, the National Award-winning actor had said in a statement, "It’s an engaging story, relevant in today’s environment. As an actor, I am always on the lookout to play characters I haven’t explored, and HIT gives me a chance to do that."
This is will be the second outing of Rajkummar and Sanya in a film. They were last seen in Netflix original Ludo directed by Anurag Basu. However, the duo didn't share screen space in the 2020 release.
