Director-producer Neeraj Pandey is bankrolling the Hindi remake of the Malayalam film Ishq. Released in 2019, Ishq is a female-centric romantic thriller highlighting the issue of moral policing. The film was directed by Anuraj Manohar and starred Shane Nigam and Ann Sheetal in the lead roles. 

According to a source, the scripting of the Hindi version is complete. The makers are presently finalising the cast. Aamir Khan’s son Junaid is likely to make his Bollywood debut with the film. The remake will be directed by Shashant Shah, known for making the comedies Dasvidaniya, Chalo Dilli, and Bajatey Raho.

Ishq is also being remade in Tamil in parallel, with Pariyerum Perumal-fame Kathir expected to star. 

Neeraj Pandey has directed films like A Wednesday, Baby, and Special 26. The filmmaker is also producing the upcoming Hindi remake of Vikram Vedha, which will be headlined by Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan.
