The remake rights of the superhit Tamil film ‘Vikram Vedha’ (2017) have been a hot commodity amongst Hindi filmmakers, with even Shah Rukh Khan interested in starring in the Bollywood version of the film. According to industry buzz, the rights have recently been secured by producer-director Neeraj Pandey’s company Friday Filmworks.
“Friday Filmworks have blocked the title for a film as well as for television and a web series so that no one can take and misuse the title,” a source from the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) told Sanskriti Media.
The cast has not been finalized yet but Madhavan, Vijay Sethupathi and Shraddha Srinath are all keen on reprising their roles for the Hindi version. When asked about whether she was interested in returning as Priya, Srinath said, “Of course. SRK was doing a session of #ASKSRK on Instagram and I got too excited and asked him who they are casting in the female lead. Of course, he did not reply.” Earlier reports suggested that the original directors Pushkar and Gayathri may also be a part of the remake, but now it seems more likely that Pandey will direct the film himself.
