In the original film, R. Madhavan had played a protagonist character of a determined and honest cop ‘Vikram’ and Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi had aced the role of a smart and clever villain ‘Vedha’.
The film was a huge blockbuster and set a new benchmark in crime-thrillers. The story has been inspired by the ancient lore ‘Vikram-Betaal’ where the wily gangster always manages to escape every time from a determined cop who nabs him, by reciting a new story drawn from his own life and leaving the cop in confusion.
Earlier, Aamir Khan was the first choice to play the role of clever antagonist which was originally played by Vijay Sethupathi. However, things didn’t work out and now the makers have signed Hrithik Roshan to play the same. Hrithik will be seen playing a benarasi gangster in the film. He will have two distinct looks of a young age and an aged man with a belly. Makers are still looking for a female star cast. If all goes well, this project will be a treat for cinemalovers.
