National award-winning director Mansore is currently in talks about a potential Hindi remake of his Kannada film Act 1978. While the specifics of the project are still unknown, Mansore plans to lead it with a fresh ensemble and crew to ensure that the adaptation resonates with the cultural intricacies of Hindi-speaking viewers.

The cast for the original film included Yagna Shetty, Sanchari Vijay, Shruthi, B Suresha, Pramod Shetty, Achyuth Kumar, and Dattanna. "We're on the lookout for a talented actor who can authentically convey the depth of our story, as it carries a potent societal message," says producer Tiwari.
