A couple of days ago, somebody asked a question on a popular Facebook group wondering who the users think would be the best choice to play Kabir Singh if the film was remade in Nepal. A lot of them said Raj Ballav Koirala would be a good choice, and others called Arpan Thapa, Saugat Malla, Aryan Sigdel, Bipin Karki to be a better choice. Some of them even said Anmol KC would be fine. I don’t know if they were joking, they must be.
Anyway, the point is — none of them mentioned Harihar Adhikari. Absolutely NONE OF THEM. And guess what, there’s actually going to be a Nepali remake of the film and it’s none other than the astrologer-actor who would play the lead.
If some media reports are to be believed, including that of Kantipur Saptahik’s, they have already acquired the rights for the remake from the Telugu-language original flick Arjun Reddy’s production company Bhadrakali Pictures.
The 2017 blockbuster, directed by Sandeep Vanga and starring Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey, was later remade in Hindi. Titled ‘Kabir Singh’, the film starring Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani was released three weeks ago, on June 21, and has already become the second highest grossing Hindi film of the year, right behind ‘Uri’.
Back to our hero; Harihar Adhikari, who had made his forgettable acting debut with ‘Subha Love’ earlier this year, is currently preparing for the role. Is he learning how to swear? I don’t know. There is no info on who the other actors would be and who will be directing the film. They will probably have a press meet sometime soon to let the people know.
This is going to be a tough one for the makers. All the best, fellas.
Vijay Deverakonda – Bhadrakali Pictures
Harihar Adhikari – Kuber Dangol
Shahid Kapoor – T-Series
That’s all. What are you guys waiting for? To read that it’s all just a joke? Nope, it’s not. It’s happening.
