Bollywood actors Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan have been selected for the Hindi remake of the superhit Tamil film ‘Vikram Vedha’ released last year. For the Hindi remake of ‘Vikram Vedha’, the creators have also made an official announcement of the names of Hrithik and Saif. It has also been said that the Hindi remake will also be directed by Pushkar-Gayatri, Tamil director ‘Vikram Vedha’. The filming of this movie will begin very soon. It will be released on September 30, 2022. Saif Ali Khan will be seen playing the role of actor R Madhavan and Hrithik Roshan as actor Vijay Sethupathi in the film.
Directed by the scriptwriter-director duo Pushkar-Gayatri Manikandan, the film stars R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi in the lead roles. This movie is a modern interpretation of Raja Vikramaditya and Betaal. Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan were contacted for this film seven months ago. The creators wanted Shah Rukh to play the role of the criminal Vedha, who was played by Vijay Sethupathi in the original film. But Shah Rukh wanted to play the role of Inspector Vikram, who was played by Madhavan. Similarly, Aamir Khan was also approached for the criminal role, but Mr. Perfectionist wanted a script change.
R Madhavan played the role of a police officer and Vijay Sethupathi as a gangster in the Tamil version of the movie ‘Vikram Vedha’.
It is said that Aamir Khan wanted the film ‘Vikram Vedha’ to be made on a large scale with Asian audiences in mind. Since then, China has been like a gold mine for Bollywood. This is why I wanted the story of the film to be based on China, but unfortunately the concept of the film had to be changed in view of Kovid-19 and the tension on the India-China border. This went wrong for Aamir and he decided to drop the movie. Similarly, there was no confirmation from Shahrukh Khan, so in the end the creators approached Hrithik Roshan for this movie. After his consent, Saif was finalized for the role of gangster.
Interesting story from the movie ‘Vikram Vedha’
When it comes to the story of the movie ‘Vikram Vedha’, it’s like a game of cat and mouse between the police and the criminals. In this, Vikram (R Madhavan) is a brave and honest police officer. Vedha (Vijay Sethupathi) is a feared criminal. Vikram creates a police team to eliminate criminals like Vedha, who wants to clean up the world of Jarayam by making an encounter. After this there is a meeting between the police and the criminals. During this, a special henchman of Vedha is killed by Vikram’s bullet. The police team gives you the form of an encounter to avoid an investigation. But this lie goes home in every cop’s mind.
Based on a fake police encounter
When a young police officer on the encounter team seems overly concerned about the fake encounter, Vikram explains that he sleeps peacefully every night, knowing that the people he shot are the same people – they were criminals. Their survival would only harm society. After this, the police team plans a second encounter to capture Vedha, but in the meantime, Vedha surprises everyone by giving up. Gangster and drug dealer Vedha then tells police officer Vikram a story inside the dungeon that puts his life in danger. The movie’s story ends with an interesting twist.

On the shoulders of Hrithik and Saif
Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan are on his shoulders in the Hindi version of the movie ‘Vikram Vedha’. Because replaying the hit characters from a blockbuster movie is nothing short of a challenge. There is a lot of pressure on the actors working on the remake, even more so when you yourself are a known artist and are going to play the character of a known artist. However, Hrithik and Saif are already hard at work for this movie. Hrithik will be seen in four different styles. His character is Banarasi. He has given special inputs regarding his attire and wardrobe. They should be given such clothes, in which the youth of Banarasi are seen.

The film will be shot on location live.
Not only this, the creators of the film want to shoot it in live locations. For this, the recognition of locations in Mumbai and Banaras etc. has been completed. It is planned to shoot 40 percent in Mumbai and 60 percent in Lucknow, Banaras and other areas of UP. If the second wave of Corona hadn’t arrived, then this movie would have hit the flats in April too. In such a way that wherever the filming of this film took place, especially in Mumbai, the production house had done the technical recognition there. For example Marine Drive, the area around Gateway of India, Navi Mumbai shipyard locations, etc. Hrithik and Saif are very excited about the movie.
