U-Turn was remade in Malayalam in 2017 as Careful. Next year, it was remade as Tamil-Telugu bilingual with the same title. The movie was remade in Sinhala in 2019 and the makers there too retained the titled U-Turn, thereby becoming the first Sinhala remake of a Kannada movie.

With Filipino adaptation, it will also become the second Kannada movie to be remade in five languages after the 1986 movie Anuraga Aralithu and will be the first Kannada movie to be remade in two foreign languages.
