Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who has geared for his upcoming film Zero opposite Anushka Sharma, might reportedly feature in the Hindi remake of popular Tamil flick Vikram Vedha. However, the actor has put two conditions before taking up this remake project, which originally starrer R. Madhavan
According to a report in BollywoodLife, the actor has put down two conditions to act in the movie. SRK’s first condition is that he would play Vijay Sethupathi’s character. However, he was offered to play Madhavan’s part initially. However, the things got sorted and the makers thought that SRK would fit best for Vedha’s character.
The second condition was reportedly that the Hindi remake should be helmed by Neeraj Pandey and not by the original director duo Pushkar and Gayatri. Reportedly, Neeraj Pandey has agreed to it and is wanting to join the team with Shah Rukh Khan in the remake.
On the other hand, DNA quoted a source saying, “There were two things. Although Shah Rukh loved the film, it’s an extremely layered and risky project to be made in Hindi. Plus, since SRK wanted to play the gangster who eventually turns out to be a hero, the space is very similar to his Fan where you end up sympathising with the film’s villain.”
The Hindi remake will be produced by Y Not Studios and Plan C Sudios which is a collaboration of Reliance Entertainment, and Neeraj Pandey and Shital Bhatia’s Friday Filmworks.
Well, there is no official confirmation regarding the same. However, it this turns true, we are highly excited to see Shah Rukh Khan and Madhavan coming together on screen for the first time. The Tamil film Vikram Vedha revolves around a ruthless cop, who wages war against an unscrupulous gangster. It’s a thriller based on the mythical tale of King Vikramadityan and the Bethal.
