Karan Johar's decision sparked some hatred as to why he was remaking someone else's work but most fans of Devarakonda were ecstatic with excitement. They see this as growth and development in the actor's reputation throughout the country. This excitement is not just a consequence of Dear Comrade being remade but because this will be Vijay Devarakonda's second film to be remade into Hindi in such a short time. His 2017 film Arjun Reddy where he played the protagonist was also remade into Hindi as Kabir Singh. Both versions of the film received huge praises and were well received by audiences despite strong opposition to the message disseminated by the film.
