Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan will star in the Hindi remake of the Tamil hit film, ‘Vikram Vedha’. The film will be directed by the makers of the original film, Pushkar-Gayathri.
After impressing the audience with the R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi starrer in Tamil, the director duo Pushkar-Gayathri will now helm the Hindi version with Hrithik and Saif in the lead roles. The film is slated to hit the theatres on September 30, 2022.
The film draws from the ancient lore of Vikram-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.
Earlier, reports were rife that Aamir Khan was expected to play the character of Vedha. However, the ‘PK’ star reportedly backed out of the project for reasons best known to him, and Hrithik was roped in for the role.
Interestingly, Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone starrer Fighter was originally scheduled for release on September 30, 2022. But it seems that its release date would now be deferred. Whether it comes before or after Vikram Vedha remake remains to be seen.
It will be exciting to watch Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan sharing the screen space for the first time.
