Sundeep Kishan’s Telugu supernatural thriller Ninu Veedani Needanu Nene (NVNN), which opens this week, is set to be remade into Hindi by the masters of the comedy-horror genre, Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D. K. 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 and have bagged the rights.
Given that there is a strong likelihood of Raj-DK adapting NVNN into Hindi, Sundeep Kishan, who plays the lead in the film apart from producing it, says he can’t wait for his film to be remade into Hindi. “Yes, Raj and D. K. have shown an interest in my film and bagged the rights,” confirms Sundeep, adding, “Raj and D. K.’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.” Admitting that he got the shivers while watching his own film, Sundeep says, “It has turned out to be quite scary. I recommend it to all those who think supernatural themes in Indian cinema are airy rather than eerie.”
