Rana Daggubati and this superstar in talks for Vikram Vedha Telugu remake
Director duo Pushkar-Gayatri’s Vikram Vedha is the latest talk of K Town. The movie starring Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathy in the titukar roles was released worldwide on July 21. Vikram Vedha opened to excellent reviews from all the centres with critics lavishing praise on the lead cast for their fantastic perfomances.
Now according to latest reports, Baahubali star Rana Daggubati and Telugu superstar Venkatesh are in talks for the Telugu remake of this movie. The makers wanted to make this movie as a bilingual but later dropped the idea. Talks about the remake were doing the rounds even before the release. An official announcement regarding the Telugu remake is expected to be made in the next few days.
“Talks have been initiated with Rana Daggubati and Venkatesh for Telugu remake. They were the first choice even before the release of Vikram Vedha. However, nothing has been finalised yet and the process might take a few more months,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.
Vikram Vedha is inspired from the popular folklore Vikram Betaal (Vikramdithyan and Vedhalam). The basic concept is borrowed from there and placed in an engaging cat and game between a cop and a gangster. Madhavan plays the tough and forthright cop Vikram and Vijay Sethupathy plays the role of Vedha, a gangster with grey shades. The movie also stars Shraddha Srinath, Kathir, Hairsh Perady and Varalakshmi Sarathkumar in prominent roles.
Upon release, Kollywood celebrities like Rajinikanth, Arya, Suriya, Karthi and director Karthik Subbaraj appreciated and congratulated the team for their success. Vikram Vedha is produced by S. Sashikanth under the banner of Y Not Studios .
