The makers finally listened to the plea of the fans and announced that the female lead of the Hindi remake is Mrunal Thakur. As per the report published in Mumbai Mirror, the actress said that she was elated to be a part of the project as the original film had a great impact on her. She also mentioned that she watched the movie twice to relive the emotional roller costar ride.

“So deep was the impact of the film that I couldn’t get it out of my heart the whole night, and immediately watched it again the next day. It felt like I had lived a full lifetime in two hours,” said the Super 30 actress. After establishing a career in television, Mrunal Thakur made her film debut with Marathi movie Vitti Dandu and appeared in Bollywood movies like Batla House and Super 30. While the actress has Ghost Stories and Toofan in the pipeline, she is all set to share screen space with the Kabir Singh actor.
