The 2018 Tamil-Telugu suspense thriller U Turn is all set to get a Hindi avatar. The film which starred the very saleable Samantha Akkineni was a moneyspinner. Understandably it has now been lapped up for a Hindi remake.
But the question is, who will play Samantha’s role of the young inexperienced journalist investigating some mysterious road accidents? Buzz is , Tapsee Pannu has been “seriously approached” to play the role . At the same time, the producers are keen on getting Samantha to reprise the role in Hindi.
Says a source, “For some strange reasons, Samantha is not keen to extend her popularity down South into the Hindi belt. They want her to do her role from U Turn. But she is reluctant.Maybe she wants to start a family.”
Given the original’s unwillingness to extend her frontiers Tapsee Pannu is the natural choice to take Samantha’s place in the Bollywood remake of U Turn.
So who will it be ,Samantha or Tapsee?
Let’s wait and watch.
