Hrithik Roshan, Saif Ali Khan to star in Vikram Vedha's Hindi remake

The original film, helmed by Pushkar and Gayathri, starred R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead roles

Published: 25th December 2020

Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan have been roped in to play the leads in the Hindi remake of the Vikram Vedha.

The original film, directed by Pushkar and Gayathri, starred R Madhavan as righteous police officer Vikram while Vijay Sethupathi essayed the gangster Vedha. In the Hindi remake, Hrithik will play the gangster role while Saif will essay the role of the cop.

Notably, the film draws inspiration from the ancient lore of Vikram and Betaal, where a wily gangster manages to escape every time a determined cop nabs him, by narrating a new story drawn from his own life.

Backed by Neeraj Pandey, the remake will also be directed by Pushkar and Gayathri. Earlier Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan was expected to play Vedha, before Hrithik Roshan replaced him.
