Ravi Teja, Sudheer Varma team up for Vikram Vedha remake
S Sashikanth who produced Vikram Vedha under Y NOT Studios is bankrolling the Telugu version too
Director Sudheer Varma is all set to join hands with actor Ravi Teja for the Telugu remake of the Tamil neo-noir action thriller, Vikram Vedha.
The 2017 film, featuring Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi, follows the story of Vikram, an encounter specialist, who is on the trail of Vedha, a gangster and a drug smuggler. While Vedha voluntarily surrenders, their professional rivalry turns personal as Vikram's life is thrown into disarray.
"Sudheer is developing the script keeping in mind the sensibilities of Telugu audience while retaining the essence of the original. As Ravi Teja has been roped in for the cop's role, the makers are on the lookout for an actor who can do justice to Vedha's part," reveals a source.
S Sashikanth, who produced Vikram Vedha under Y NOT Studios, is bankrolling the Telugu version too. The film is expected to go on floors later this year soon after Ravi Teja wraps up his upcoming sci-fi thriller, Disco Raja.
