Vikram Vedha Hindi remake officially announced!
Vikram Vedha is one of the most talked about Tamil movies in recent years. The movie starring Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead roles was released in July last year and went on to become a huge success. Apart from doing great business, the movie also won rave reviews from the critics. Pushkar-Gayathri duo directed the movie and was produced by Y Not Studios.
Ever since the release of Vikram Vedha, there have been constant reports about it getting remade in other languages. Medias even reported that Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has expressed his interest to remake the movie in Hindi. Venkatesh and Rana’s names were said for the Telugu version. But the makers had dismissed all that as baseless.
Finally, they have come up with an official statement about the Hindi remake. Y Not Studios are joining hands with Anil D Ambani’s Reliance Entertainment and Neeraj Pandey’s Plan C Studios for remaking the movie in Hindi. Pushkar and Gayathri will be directing the Hindi version as well, cast of which will be officially announced later.
Vikram Vedha is inspired from the popular folklore Vikram Betal. The basic concept is borrowed from there and placed in an engaging cat and mouse game between a police officer and a gangster. Madhavan played the tough cop Vikram and Vijay Sethupathy essayed the role of Vedha, a gangster with grey shades. Both the actors won widespread appreciation for their fabulous perfomance. It will be nothing but a challenging task for the makers of the Hindi version to live up to the original. Stay tuned for more updates.
