Aditya Roy Kapur to star in Hindi remake of Thadam

The film will be helmed by debutant director Vardhan Ketkar

Published: 29th July 2021

Aditya Roy Kapur will star in the Hindi remake of the Tamil film Thadam, the makers officially announced on Thursday. 

Directed by debutant Vardhan Ketkar, the film will feature Aditya in two different avatars. The project will tentatively go on floors in September this year. It's being co-produced by Bhushan Kumar and Murad Khetani. 

"I am inspired and excited to be part of telling such an interesting story," Aditya shares. "The original film was incredibly riveting and entertaining, and it left a lasting impression on me. As an actor, getting a chance to do a double role is double the preparation and double the challenge, and I’m certainly up for it!" 

Since the release of Thadam in 2019, Murad Khetani was keen to make the film for Hindi audiences. Earlier, actor Sidharth Malhotra was said to headline the remake. He was later replaced by Aditya. 

Talking about the film, Murad says, “When I watched Thadam I instantly knew that this story needs to reach the masses. Soon after I reached out to the Tamil makers and acquired the rights of making this film in Hindi. When I shared the story with Bhushanji, he came on board immediately. Aditya has been doing great work and his image as an action hero is being highly appreciated." 

Aditya's upcoming release is Om - The Battle Within. The action thriller also features Sanjana Sanghi.
