Over last few years, many film from south Indian cinema are being remade as mainstream Bollywood films. These remakes like Kabir Singh and Simmba did amazing at the box office breaking some records as well. Now the latest we hear is that the 2018 Tamil-Telugu suspense thriller U Turn is all set to get a Hindi makeover. And Taapsee Pannu will most likely feature in it.
U Turn starred Samantha Akkineni, Aadhi Pinisetty, Rahul Ravindran and Bhumika Chawla. Samantha played the role of a young reporter investigating some mysterious accidents that take place because of taking a ‘U-Turn’ on the highway.
Says a source,
“For some strange reasons, Samantha is not keen to extend her popularity down South into the Hindi belt. They want her to do her role from U Turn. But, she is reluctant. Maybe she wants to start a family.”
Buzz is now that Taapsee Pannu has been ‘seriously approached’ to play the part. At the same time, the producers are keen on getting Samantha to reprise the role in Hindi version.
Let’s wait and see if Samantha says yes to the Hindi version or if Taapsee Pannu will play the part.
On the work front, Taapsee will soon feature in Thappad co-starring Arjun Kapoor, Manoj Pahwa, Sharman Joshi, Nidhi Uttam, Pavail Gulati and others. The actress’ last release was the hit Saand Ki Aankh.
