Hrithik Roshan has shared a first look at his upcoming crime thriller remake, Vikram Vedha.
The Bollywood megastar’s next film is a Hindi remake of the blockbuster Tamil neo-noir crime thriller of the same name.
The image was unveiled by the producers, T-Series and Reliance Entertainment, to the actor’s 48th birthday on 10 January.
The remake stars Roshan alongside Saif Ali Khan as the leads, with Radhika Apte also in a key role. Original writer-director duo Pushkar and Gayatri return to direct the new film.
Based on the Indian meta-folktale Vikram aur Betaal, the story centres on a “tough police officer” who sets out to “track down and kill an equally tough gangster”.
The original Tamil pic starred R. Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi and was one of the biggest Tamil hits of 2017 — received well both in India and abroad.
The Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara actor took to social media on his birthday to announce his upcoming project with a first look at the film.
