Confirmed: Sidharth Malhotra to star in Thadam Hindi remake!
Arun Vijay’s crime thriller film ‘Thadam’ was a big surprise hit last year. The film directed by Magizh Thirumeni had the star in a dual role. Releasing amidst very less hype, it went on to become a superhit at the box office purely on the basis of word of mouth. Following its success, a Telugu remake was announced. Titled as ‘Red’, the film stars Ram Pothineni in the lead. The Kishore Tirumala directorial is scheduled to release in April.
Meanwhile, a Hindi version of ‘Thadam’ is also getting ready. Sidharth Malhotra has been signed for the film, which will be directed by debutant Vardhan Ketkar. Murad Khetani and Bhushan Kumar are jointly producing the film. It is the duo’s second South Indian remake venture after Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Kabir Singh’, which was adapted from the Telugu film ‘Arjun Reddy’.
The Hindi remake of ‘Thadam’, which is yet to be titled, will start rolling in May. The makers are currently working on tweaking the script to make it suitable for the sensibilities of the North Indian audience. Official announcement with title will be made soon after finalizing the remaining cast and crew.
