Prithviraj and Karan Johar to produce Driving Licence Hindi remake!
We had recently reported about the hit Malayalam film ‘Driving Licence’ getting remade in Hindi. Prithviraj Sukumaran, who produced and starred in the original, is making his debut as a producer in Hindi by remaking it. He is co-producing the film along with Karan Johar’s Dharma Produtions
‘Driving Licence’, directed by Lal Jr, had Prithviraj and Suraj Venjaramoodu as the leads. Scripted by the late Sachy, the film is about a troublesome relationship between a film star and his once-ardent fan, who is also a driving inspector. In the remake, Akshay Kumar will be playing the superstar’s role and Emraan Hashmi will be playing the cop’s part essayed by Suraj in the original. Raj Mehta, who has worked with Akshay in ‘Good Newwz’, will be directing it.
The Hindi version is expected to be slightly tweaked to suit the sensibilities of their audience. The team is looking at beginning production in January 2022 and wrap up the entire film in a 40-day-long schedule.
