Ekta Kapoor has reportedly acquired the Hindi remake rights of Kannada film ‘U Turn’ (2016).
Deccan Chronicle reports that Kapoor could get the original writer, producer and director, Pawan Kumar, to helm the Hindi version. The film is said to be about female journalist, who tries to uncover the story of road offenders on a double road junction.
A source told the publication, “It is now being said that Ekta may still get Pawan to shepherd the Hindi version as well. A lot of filmmakers wanted to take over the rights of the film but Pawan was keen to direct the Hindi version as well. The film is also a supernatural thriller and that is the reason why Ekta was keen to remake the film as it falls in her domain. The last 30 minutes of the Telugu-Tamil version was different from the Kannada one. It is to be seen as to what track Ekta takes for the Hindi remake.”
