Actor Raj Tarun has confirmed that he has signed the Telugu remake of the Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer, Dream Girl (2019). Directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa, the film also featured Nushrat Bharucha.

Speaking to The Indian Express newspaper, the actor confirmed that the film's Telugu remake was one among his upcoming projects. “I will be doing a rom-com, which is different from all that I have done so far. I have also signed the Telugu remake of Ayushmann Khurrana’s Dream Girl under Suresh Productions and it’s going to be a challenging project for me,” he said.

The actor also said that he has a film with Annapurna Studios under the direction of Srinivas Gavireddy in the pipeline. “The shooting of the movie was supposed to start in March but for now, it has been postponed without a date,” he added.

Last December, Suresh Babu Daggubati of Suresh Productions confirmed acquiring the remake rights of Dream Girl (2019) and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018). “We hope to have six releases next year. We’ve also bought remake rights to two Korean films. Hopefully, those will also get made next year. It’s going to be a very busy year,”he had said. 

The production house has also acquired the remake rights of Tamil film Asuran (2019). The remake, which stars Venkatesh and Priyamani in the lead roles, is titled Naarappa (2020) in Telugu. Srikanth Addala has been signed to direct the remake. The project went on the floors earlier this year.

Based on the popular Tamil novel Vekkai, Asuran turned out to be a blockbuster with over Rs100 crore in gross earnings. Directed by Vetrimaaran, the film is about a farmer, who avenges the ruthless murder of his eldest son. The film featured Dhanush in dual roles, playing his character over two generations.
