Sailesh Kolanu is the director-writer known for the 'HIT: The First Case'. The film rose to success due to its gripping storyline. The audiences were so intrigued by the film that soon they will witness HIT: The 2nd Case in Telugu. In order to keep spreading such engaging tales, Sailesh decided to expand the reach and make a Hindi version of this original thriller.
When people started debating on the whole North vs South cinema, Sailesh explained, “This is a remake, I agree. However, it's not like those usual remakes that audiences get to see. Honestly speaking, this is my personal belief that remakes should only be done by an individual who did the original film. However, let me underline some important facts about this film which usually happens in very rare scenarios where the original director, writer and even the original cinematographer, Mr S. Manikandan. Even the editor of the original HIT, Garry BH has also edited this HIT too. Dil Raju sir was one of the biggest distributors of the Telugu version and also felt that we can showcase this film to the Hindi audiences by increasing our scale and by giving it a little Hindi tweak, touching upon relevant topics by giving the same high into the Hindi audiences in theatres then it will be a great work of art. When the original technical team is retelling the story to a wider audience, I feel we should have a different term for it. May be an original recreation !!”
He added, “Thrillers like this are meant to be watched in a theatre with an immersive sound and visual experience. That’s how the original was experienced. I wanted the nation to enjoy this movie like that.”
The film is all set to release on July 15. Sanya Malhotra, the actress of the film, speaking to mid-day, said- "I finished 'HIT' with Rajkummar Rao, it's a film that I manifested because I really wanted to work with Raj! I'm really grateful to get a film like this one and I hope we get more films together in the future. I absolutely admire him as an actor, he's very inspiring. HIT is a remake, directed by Sailesh Kolanu. It's releasing in just a month, on July 15th and I can't wait for people to watch it."
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Dil Raju, Krishan Kumar, and Kuldeep Rathore, the film is directed by Dr. Sailesh Kolanu. The film featuring Rajkumar Rao and Sanya Malhotra in pivotal roles will hit the theatres on the 15th of July, 2022.
