Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan to star in Hindi remake of Vikram Vedha
The film will release on September 30, 2022
Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan will star in the Hindi remake of Vikram Vedha, trade analyst Taran Adarsh revealed on Saturday.
Released in 2017, the hit Tamil action-thriller starred R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi. A Hindi remake of the film has been in the offing for a while now. It will be helmed by Pushkar-Gayathri, the director duo of the original film.
Taran Adarsh tweeted, "HRITHIK - SAIF IN 'VIKRAM VEDHA' REMAKE... #HrithikRoshan and #SaifAliKhan will star in the #Hindi remake of #Tamil film #VikramVedha... Pushkar-Gayathri - the director duo of the original film - will direct the #Hindi version too... 30 Sept 2022 release."
Inspired by the folktale Baital Pachisi, Vikram Vedha followed a cop, played by R Madhavan, on the hunt of a gangster, played by Vijay Sethupathi. After he voluntarily surrenders himself, Sethupathi's Vedha tells three stories to the cop, altering his perceptions of good and evil.
Hrithik and Saif were co-stars in the 2002 drama Na Tum Jaano Na Hum. Hrithik has never played a police officer before, though Saif has played both a cop and a gangster. Their exact roles in the remake are yet to be revealed.
