Saif Ali Khan and Hrithik Roshan are coming together after two-decade for Tamil hits ‘Vikram Vedha’. Both are paired for the Hindi remake of the Tamil hit. Saif confirmed that they are going to start the shooting in October, “Oh yes, we are starting next month”.
Earlier Saif and Hrithik work together in Na Tum Jano Na Hum also starring Esha Deal in lead. Saif also explained that his role was ‘smallish’ and he is looking forward to working with Hrithik.
He also said, “That was a smallish kind of a role, but yes, I have worked with him before. Vikram Vedha is a fab movie and I am completely kicked about it but I am still waiting to get into that gear.”
When asked about the preparation of the film, saif said that he had multiple script reading sessions, “We have read it a few times and it’s going to be a very challenging film. Hrithik is a guy, who I think is a phenomenal actor, looker, and dancer. He is a general force of cinema, so I have to get up early and pull up my socks”.
During an interview session Saif was companied by Bhoot-Police co-star Arjun Kapoor who poked fun at him saying, “But thankfully, you don’t have to dance(with Hrithik Roshan)”. To which Saif responded, “Yeah, or else I would not have done the film. In fact, no one would make the two of us dance until and unless they want to make a strange movie.”
Vikram Vedha is a Tamil movie starring R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi. Madhavan played the role of a police officer, Vikram, while Vijay played the role of the gangster, Vedha.
The Hindi version of the movie will be directed by the duo Pushkar and Gayatri and produced by Neeraj Pandey.
