Looks like the success of 'Kabir Singh' has paved the path for similar remakes in Bollywood. Filmmaker-producer Karan Johar has taken up the rights to remake Telugu film 'Dear Comrade'. 

The film stars Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna and is yet to release in theatres, but is already on its way for a remake in Hindi.

Johar met Vijay and made the announcement on his social media accounts."Had the pleasure to be the first to see #dearcomrade ! What a powerful and intense love story !!! Top notch performances by @thedeverakonda and @rashmika_mandanna !! The film is exceptionally moving and leaves you with such an important and relevant message! Strongly directed by debut director @bharatkamma and wonderfully produced by @mythriofficial !! Exceptional music by #justinprabhakaran Glad to ANNOUNCE that @dharmamovies will be producing the Hindi remake of #dearcomrade !! Super excited about this!!!," he wrote on Instagram.

The film has already created a buzz among fans with its interesting character and storyline. 

`Dear Comrade` is an intense and powerful story between Rashmika, a cricketer and Vijay who is a student leader and has anger management issues.

Deverakonda's 2017 hit 'Arjun Reddy' was remade by filmmaker Sandeep Vanga Reddy in Hindi as 'Kabir Singh' which has already earned more than Rs 200 crores at the box office and still going strong. 

`Dear Comrade` is set to release on July 26 and is helmed by Bharat Kamma and produced by Mythri Movie Makers.
