Karan Johar and Hridayam

Karan Johar is always looking for ways to surprise his audience. Following the announcement of his directorial Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, Dharma Productions' head has taken to social media to reveal his next project. 

Given the current trend of remaking big South Indian films, Karan Johar has opted to recreate Hridayam, a classic Malayalam romance drama starring Pranav Mohanlal, Kalyani Priyadarshan, and Darshana Rajendran. The film released in January of this year.

“I am so delighted and honoured to share this news with you. Dharma Productions & Fox Star Studios have acquired the rights to a beautiful, coming-of-age love story, #Hridayam in Hindi, Tamil & Telugu – all the way from the south, the world of Malayalam cinema.
