The actor is playing the role which Vijay Sethupathi played in the Tamil original.
The Hindi remake of Vikram Vedha has made fans as excited as ever. Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan have stepped into the shoes of R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi in the Hindi remake directed by the duo of Pushkar and Gayathri. Now, on January 10, on the occasion of Hrithik's birthday, the makers are set to drop the first look of the actor, which has sent the Internet into a meltdown.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter page and made the announcement with a note. It reads, "Brace Yourselves! #VedhaFirstLook out tomorrow. #VikramVedha."
He wrote, "'VIKRAM VEDHA': HRITHIK FIRST LOOK TOMORROW... Team #VikramVedha will unveil #FirstLook of #HrithikRoshan as #Vedha tomorrow, on his birthday... #SaifAliKhan and #RadhikaApte... directed by Pushkar-Gayathri, who directed the original #Tamil film. #VedhaFirstLook. #TSeries and #RelianceEntertainment in association with #FridayFilmworks and #YNOTStudios present #VikramVedha... 30 Sept 2022 release. "
Vikram Vedha follows the story of Vikram (Madhavan), a police inspector who sets out to track down and kill Vedha (Sethupathi), a thug, and is inspired by the Indian folktale Baital Pachisi. Following his voluntary surrender, Vedha gives Vikram three stories that alter his perspective on virtue and evil.
Pushkar and Gayathri announced in March 2018 that they would direct the Hindi version of the film, which would be produced by YNOT Studios and co-produced by Plan C Studios. In August 2019, Saif will play the cop, and Aamir Khan will play the gangster. It was announced in August 2019. Shooting was set to begin in mid-2020, but Aamir departed the movie in November 2020, apparently due to scripting concerns, following production delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in India, during which the writers also reworked the script.
Shortly after, the producers signed Hrithik Roshan to take up the role. Principal photography began on October 15, 2021, and it is set to be released on September 30, 2022.
