Exactly a year ago, Rajkummar Rao had confirmed signing the Hindi remake of the Telugu blockbuster, HIT. The film is expected to go on floors soon. Now, as the film is in its pre-production stage, Rajkummar has finally found his leading lady in Sanya Malhotra. The actress, who delivered a stellar performance in Netflix's film Pagglait, is teaming up with Rajkummar for the second time after Ludo.
In a statement, Sanya told "I have watched HIT and I really liked the concept of the film. When the film was offered to me, I immediately said yes. It is a very interesting and intriguing story that deserves a mass audience. I am looking forward to this one & excited to work with Raj."
HIT revolves around a cop in the Crime Investigation Department who works in the Homicide Intervention Team, who is on a mission to trace a missing woman. The original featured Vishwak Sen and Ruhani Sharma in the lead roles. The remake will be produced by Bhushan Kumar, Dil Raju and Kuldeep Rathore. It will be directed by Dr. Sailesh Kolanu.
Workwise, Sanya has projects like Meenakshi Sundereshwar and Love Hostel. Rajkummar will be seen in Hum Do Hamare Do and Badhaai Do.
