Rajkummar Rao to star in Hindi remake of Telugu thriller ‘HIT’


Rajkummar Rao will star in the Hindi remake of Telugu thriller ‘HIT’ (2020), makers announced on Wednesday.

‘HIT,’ which stands for Homicide Intervention Team, tells the story of a police officer who is on the trail of a missing woman, reports the Hindustan Times. Director of the original, Sailesh Kolanu, who received praise for the thriller, will also be heading up the project in Hindi.

Kolanu said in a statement, “The first case of HIT tells the story of a police officer who is constantly fighting a battle with his past and his present. So it’s a troubled character. I wanted to cast someone who can bring that darkness to the role and still make the audience root for him with a matured performance.”

The director went on to say, “I felt Raj can evoke that kind of a response. I have been following Rajkummar’s work ever since I watched Shaitaan. He is a terrific actor and has managed to surprise us every time with his performances. I am really excited to be working with Rajkummar Rao and Dil Raju sir on this project.”

Rao himself was quick to praise the project and said, “When I saw HIT, I instantly connected with it. It’s an engaging story, relevant in today’s environment. As an actor I am always on the look out to play characters I haven’t explored and HIT gives me a chance to do that. I’m looking forward to take this journey with Sailesh and Dil Raju.”
