Prithviraj Sukumaran has reportedly jumped on board as co-producer, along with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, to helm the remake of ‘Driving Licence’ starring Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi. The film will be directed by Raj Mehta.
It is worth adding that Prithviraj was the actor in the Malayalam version of the film.
A source told PinkVilla, “While Akshay plays the role of a superstar in this edge of the seat drama, Emraan will be seen portraying the character of a cop, who happens to be a die-hard fan of the Khiladi. The film is an ego battle between the two powerful, which keeps the audience on the edge of their seat.”
The source further stated, “When Karan Johar made this proposal to the makers of Driving License, Prithviraj was keen to bankroll the project alongside KjO in Hindi. The two eventually decided to join hands on this star-studded project. Much like the original, Driving License in Hindi too will be produced by Prithviraj.”
