Akshay Kumar and director’s Raj Mehta’s Good Newwz (2019) tasted a decent triumph with more than Rs 318 Cr collections at the BO. And the actor is once again reuniting with Mehta for his next project. This edge of the seat drama will be produced by Karan Johar.
And to much surprise, the film is a remake of the Malayalam hit, Driving License. Driving License was a hit film in 2019, starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Suraj Venjaramoodu. It is learnt that this Hindi remake will now be produced by Prithviraj Sukumaran himself along with Karan Johar.
With this film, Prithviraj is going to make his debut as a producer in Bollywood. The two lead actors will be Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi playing the role of a superstar and a cop respectively. To recall, the Telugu remake of Driving License was reportedly bought by Ram Charan.
The sources confirm that Prithviraj was keen to produce the Hindi remake alongside Karan Johar. The original was bankrolled under Prithiviraj’s production banner as well. Bollywood’s Driving License is believed to go on the floors in January and will be shot over a period of 50 days.
