While remakes of south films continue to fascinate filmmakers, we had told you last month that a Hindi remake of R.Madhavan-Vijay Sethupathi's blockbuster 'Vikram Vedha' is officially on the cards. Since the makers made the officially announcement about the Hindi version, several names are doing the rounds when it comes to the cast. Anil D. Ambani led Reliance Entertainment and its partners Plan C studios spearheaded by Neeraj Pandey and Y Not Studios headed by S. Sashikanth are coming together to remake 2017's Tamil blockbuster Vikram Vedha in Hindi.
The latest we have been hearing is that Shahrukh Khan is keen on starring in this remake. If rumours are to be believed then before giving his final nod, buzz is that the superstar has put forth two conditions. Scroll down to read more about it-
Shahrukh Wants To Go Grey?
As per a TOI report, Shahrukh Khan wants to reprise Vijay Sethupathi's role of Vedha and is keen that R.Madhavan plays his original role of Vikram in the Hindi remake.
The Superstar Wants Neeraj Pandey To Helm The Remake?
While the original director duo, Pushkar and Gayatri have been retained to direct the Hindi remake too, there are strong whispers that SRK wants Neeraj who is one of the producers to don the director's chair for neo-noir action crime thriller.
Vikram Vedha Had To Be Retold
Neeraj Pandey was earlier quoted as saying, "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".
When Madhavan Was Quizzed About Starring In A Hindi Remake
Earlier this year at one of the events when Madhavan was asked about the lead actor in the Hindi remake, he had said, " Some actor who will give us a great date and an enormous market. But it is too premature for me to talk about it. I don't know whether I will be doing it also, because it is actually a burden of love more than a creative call. I have always shied away from remaking my own stuff in a different language, except from Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein. But I can assure you that it is being made this year for sure."
For those who ain't aware, Vikram Vedha tells the story of a tough police officer who sets out to track down and kill an equally tough gangster. This Tamil blockbuster starred R. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi in lead roles.
