One of the celebrated talents of Bollywood, Rajkumar Rao is currently working on the Hindi remake of the Telugu film, HIT. Titled ‘HIT- The First Case’, this movie is currently under production. Now, the makers have announced its release date.
HIT will release across the world on May 20, 2022. “Get set for Bhushan Kumar & Dil Raju’s HIT – The First Case, starring @RajkummarRao & @sanyamalhotra07, the mystery thriller to release on 20th May 2022,” tweeted T-Series’ official Twitter handle.
The film marks Dil Raju’s debut in Bollywood. Dil Raju is also a part of Jersey and F2 remakes but it looks like HIT will be the first one to hit the screens, technically marking the producer’s first release in Hindi.
Sailesh Kolanu, who had directed the original, is also directing this remake version. Of late, it has become a trend where directors who helmed original regional versions, are opting to direct the Hindi remake versions as well. Sandeep Vanga did it for Kabir Singh and Gautam Tinnanuri is currently doing the same for Jersey.
HIT features Sanya Malhotra as the female lead. The film is an investigation thriller which deals with the case of a missing girl. Dil Raju and T-Series are jointly bankrolling this project
The original version featured Vishwak Sen and Ruhani Sharma in the lead roles. It was a success at the Tollywood box office.
