Reports are doing rounds that Ravi Teja has been roped in to play the cop role in the Telugu remake of Vikram Vedha which will be directed by Sudheer Varma. Although there is no official confirmation regarding this, news has it that the pre-production works of the film have already begun. And according to latest reports, the makers may have found the second lead actor for the film. Emerging reports reveal that RX 100 fame actor Kartikeya has been roped in to play the other lead role which was essayed by Vijay Sethupathi in the original. However, the actor is yet to give his nod for the film since his calendar is full with other assignments. Kartikeya is gearing up for the release of his upcoming Nani's film Gang Leader which has him playing the antagonist.
The original had R Madhavan playing the ruthless cop while Vijay Sethupathi played the menacing gangster. The story is setup in the slums of North Madras which was rustic. Fans of this film from non-Tamil states believe that it will be difficult to replicate the theme of the film in other languages since the story is based on elements in North Madras. It will be interesting to see how the Telugu remake will shape up.
A remake in Bollyood for Vikram Vedha is also in the offing which will have Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan playing the lead roles. Saif would be seen playing the cop while Aamir would be seen reprising Vijay Sethpathi's role. With such huge demand for the remake of Vikram Vedha, one would wonder if the remakes would be able to achieve the same success as the original. Lets wait and watch!
