Reportedly, KJo was not only the only one who was looking to buy the remake rights of ‘Dear Comrade’. Bhusan Kumar, Sajid Nadiadwala, Vijay Galani, and Murad Khetani were also interested. But, eventually, Karan Johar turned out to be the biggest bidder amongst all.
According to reports, Karan Johar paid Rs 6 crore to bag the Hindi remake rights of Dear Comrade film. As per the report, Karan Johar was keen to cast Vijay Deverekonda himself to play the lead role in Hindi remake as well.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, KJo even offered him Rs 40 crore for the role but the South star has politely refused to do so. He had also refused to feature in ‘Kabir Singh’, the remake of his mega-hit ‘Arjun Reddy’.
