A short while ago, rumours/reports of Shah Rukh Khan producing the recent Tamil blockbuster ‘Vikram Vedha’ in Hindi began doing the rounds. And, as expected, this created a buzz amongst fans. Now, the producers of the original have responded to the reports and said that have not sold the remake rights to anyone yet and are keen to produce the Hindi version themselves. They went on to add that they will be making a formal announcement pretty soon.

“We have not sold the remake rights of VikramVedha in any language. We have plans of producing it ourselves. Official announcement soon. Tx,” added the producers.

In case you did not know, ‘Vikram Vedha’ is a crime-thriller and is based on the stories of Vikram-Betaal. Directed by Pushkar-Gayathri, it features Madhavan in the role of a cop while Vijay Sethupathi essays the role of a cruel gangster. Released in July, it opened to a thunderous response at the box office and earned rave reviews along the way.

Interestingly, recently, it was reported that Sudeep might star in its Kannada remake. Moreover, during an exclusive interaction with Pinkvilla South, Rana Daggubati had confirmed that he was approached for the Telugu remake of ‘Vikram Vedha’.

“I saw Vikram Vedha recently and really liked the film. Yes, we were approached for the Telugu remake. The world that Vikram Vedha is set in is not something that we have here in Hyderabad. We don’t have the ports, gangsters, mafia, smuggling and things like that,” he had said.

So, do you think that ‘Vijram Vedha’ has the potential to work in other languages as well? Comments, please!

      Not sorry SRK
      He has survived because of low IQ twits that call themselves fans
      C’mon India is a country that repeatedly elects corrupt politicians, lets criminal businessman off the hook easy, AND lets SRK’s bestie Salman mow down people on the sidewalk

      I mean, we dont have a very great track record
      Hoisting a chain smoking stuttering hamming man is the least of of those crimes… yep.. 😛

    SRK can’t match the superb acting talents of both Maddy and Vijay Sethupathi.

      But then Hindi audience doesn’t care for the thing called “acting”. They only look for aging, chain smoking, stuttering man romancing young nubile virgins 😛

        lets not even talk about what happens in south with fascination over navels of white women. Bollywood churns its share of sh**t and South goes one step ahead while doing the same.

      GODD No!
      They shouldnt make this in Hindi. It has flop written all over it. The Hindi stars are too self absorbed with their own “Stardom” to ever elevate themselves and act.

    SRK is not fit to play either of the roles. You need talented actors.
