Shah Rukh Khan who has generated a lot of curiosity with his choice of a dwarf film to star in as his next venture has upped the curiosity meter further with the news of acquiring the remake right of Tamil blockbuster Vikram Vedha.
Based on the popular folk lore Vikram-betal, the Tamil Movie VikramVedha has Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathy in lead roles. Touted as the best gangster movie to release in recent times, the movie received critical acclaim and was enormously liked by the movie goers.
The buzz about SRK being interested in the rights of the movie began to gain grounds when some media reported the presence of Vikram Vedha producers at Mannat. Incidentally, Shah Rukh Khan had released the trailer of VikramVedha on his twitter handle on June 22nd of this year.
While fans of Shah Rukh Khan and Vikram Vedha are ecstatic at the news, Producer of VikramVedha S.Shashikanth of Y Not Studios has categorically clarified that they have not sold the rights of the movie to anyone. They are expected to make an official announcement soon.
We have not sold the remake rights of VikramVedha in any language. We have plans of producing it ourselves. Official announcement soon. Tx
