South film Vikram Vedha starring R Madhavan, Vijay Sethupathi is one the biggest hits of 2017. The film is now set to be made in Hindi with Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan. Earlier, it was Aamir Khan with Saif but the former opted out of the film and Hrithik replaced the Dangal actor. However, there’s a change in the star cast again as Roshan has supposedly opted out of the remake of Vikram Vedha, citing that he was not very keen on doing the film. As per the latest report in BollywoodHungama.com, the source close to the development revealed he backed out of the film and went for Disney+ Hotstar's adaptation of The Night Manager.
A source said, "It is very confusing with Hrithik. Unless your movie is on the floors and he is shooting, you can never be assured that he will do the film. Hrithik had happily agreed to do the Vikram Vedha remake with Saif Ali Khan. The makers had worked out a schedule, locked the remuneration and everything was almost going as planned. But lockdown happened and now, Hrithik seems to have decided otherwise. He doesn't seem keen on doing the Vikram Vedha remake anymore.”
Earlier, there were reports that Hrithik chose the South remake over his digital debut but now, the source informs otherwise. Apart from Fighter and Krissh 4, Hrithik can allot dates to only one project and that is reportedly said to be the digital project.
“He begins shooting for Fighter sometime later this year and then he has dates for Krrish 4. So he could only allot dates for one more project and he is choosing to do the web series over Vikram Vedha. It is Madhu Mantena who apparently changed his mind on the same but nobody knows the real reason why he's suddenly become so unsure of the project,” said the source.
