The bilingual film has Samantha, Adhi Pinisetty and Rahul Ravindran in the lead roles.
The film is a remake of a Kannada film of the same name directed by Pawan Kumar that hit the marquee in 2016 and had turned out to be a major hit. A mystery thriller, U Turn had Shraddha Srinath, Radhika Chetan, Dileep Raj and Roger Narayan in the star cast.
With the Tamil and Telugu versions of U Turn gearing up for a Vinayaka Chathurthi release, the director has plans to remake to the film in Hindi as well. But sources in the know say that the producer to bankroll the film in Hindi has not been finalised yet. However, it is reported that Pawan Kumar will be donning the director’s robes for the Hindi remake as well. The cast has not been signed up as yet as well.
