Sundeep Kishan’s Telugu supernatural thriller Ninu Veedani Needanu Nene (NVNN) which opens this week is likely to be remade into Hindi by none other the masters of the comedy-horror genre Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. The directorial duo who virtually invented the horror-comic genre in Bollywood and also wrote the 2018 blockbuster Stree, has apparently shown a “keen interest” in NVNN.
There is a strong likelihood of Raj-DK adapting the NVNN into Hindi. Sundeep Kishan who plays the lead in the film and has also produced it , says he can’t wait for his film to me remade into Hindi. “Yes, Raj and DK have indeed shown an interest in my film. But it’s too early to speak about it. All I can say is, I’m flattered by their interest in Ninu Veedani Needanu Nene (NVNN). Raj and DK’s Stree was a source of inspiration for us. And we can’t wait for the audience to see what we have attempted in the supernatural genre,” says Sundeep.
Sundeep says he got the shivers while watching his own film. “It has turned out quite scary. I recommend it to all those who think supernatural themes in Indian cinema are airy rather than eerie.”
Raj and DK have become extremely popular after the unexpected success of Stree last year. There were talks that they would be making a sequel to Stree too which would also star Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor.
