Hindi remake of Madhavan’s Vikram Vedha confirmed by Reliance Entertainment

R Madhavan’s Tamil crime thriller Vikram Vedha is all set to be remade for the Hindi movie audience. Reliance Entertainment made an official announcement on Wednesday about the project. The filmmakers have retained the original director duo Pushkar and Gayatri for the Hindi remake. Filmmaker Neeraj Pandey is going to join hands with the team as the writer and creative producer.

Sharing more about the project the Aiyaary director Neeraj said, “Vikram Vedha is a unique film and this story has to be retold to the Hindi audience world over. We have all grown up on the Vikram Betaal mythology, but this out of the box contemporary treatment makes it a must-see movie.” Apart from Neeraj, the venture is planned to be co-produced by Reliance Entertainment and Y Not Studios headed by S. Sashikanth.

Vikram Vedha is a action crime thriller inspired by the mythological characters of Vikram and Betaal. The movie is about the story of a tough police officer (R Madhavan) who decides to track down and capture an equally tough gangster (Vijay Sethupathi). Superstar Rajinikanth too described the film as a “mass film made with so much class.” It struck gold at the box-office domestically as well as outside India and reportedly collected Rs 50 crore in India.

Although the directors of the original film have been retained, details about the cast of the film is not revealed yet. But going by R. Madhavan’s wish which he expressed in an interview, the entire team of the Tamil film should be a part of its Hindi remake. Madhavan said, “I would love to take the film, the entire team of ‘Vikram Vedha’ to Bollywood. This is a team I don’t want to let go of. The same story can be set in Mumbai. If everything works out, we could make it in Hindi.”
