As the South continue to present interesting and inspirational films for Bollywood to look at, news has it that filmmaker Neeraj Pandey is already working on the Hindi version of the blockbuster Tamil film ‘Vikram Vedha’ (2017).
Working with some of the film’s original crew, including its producer S Sashikanth, Pandey is recreating a gripping story of Vikram, a cop on mission in capturing a gang, lead by Vedha, who are rioting the streets of Chennai. Talking about the project, Mumbai Mirror reports Pandey expressing, “It is one of the best films to emerge not just from the Tamil market but from the Indian film industry as a whole in the last decade. And as Vikram and Vedha’s stories unfold, you discover different layers to their characters and their individual points of view.”
“There is a twist in the tale for the audience every 20-30 minutes, leading up to an intriguing climax, which leaves the viewer to decide who gets killed,” he added.
Still in its early stages, Pandey is yet to think about casting. The original film starred R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi.
