South Indian movie remakes have been common in Bollywood for years, and the trend has continued even in recent years. After the success of Kabir Singh, more Hindi remakes have been announced, and one among them is HIT: The First Case. The movie will star Rajkummar Rao and Sanya Malhotra.
The remake of HIT went on floors with a Muhurat ceremony on Sunday.
For the 'Muhurat' shot, Rajkummar was seen posing with director Sailesh Kolanu, who had also directed the original movie. His co-star Sanya Malhotra was not seen in the picture.
The duo had recently worked together in the movie Ludo. However, they had been paired opposite other actors; the former starring alongside Sanya's Dangal co-star Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya was seen romancing Aditya Roy Kapur.
Among the others who were present at the event was T-Series' Bhushan Kumar, who is one of the producers of the movie. Along with him were Dil Raju and Kuldeep Rathore, who have both been listed as producers on the movie.
