Mumbai: Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan are set to play the lead roles in the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster 'Vikram Vedha' with the producers planning to release the film next year in September.

The original neo-noir crime thriller, which was released in 2017, featured south stars R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi. The movie was produced by Sashikanth of 'YNot Studios'.

The film is being remade in Hindi by filmmaker Neeraj Pandey under his company 'Friday Filmworks' in association with 'Reliance Entertainment' and 'YNot Studios'.

"The Hindi remake with the Bollywood stars is in the advanced pre-production stage and will most likely go on floors in August. We are looking to release it on September 30, 2022," revealed a source close to the film.

The Tamil movie, directed by Pushkar and Gayathri, had Madhavan playing the role of a hard-nosed cop Vikram and Sethupathi as gangster Vedha.

The writer-director duo are on board to direct the Hindi remake as well.

Besides this film, Hrithik will soon begin shooting for his next action movie 'Fighter'. The patriotic-action-drama, also starring Deepika Padukone, will be directed by Siddharth Anand.

Meanwhile, Saif has adventure-horror-comedy 'Bhoot Police' slated for release on September 17 on 'Disney + Hotstar VIP'. He is also reuniting with 'Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior' director Om Raut to play Lankesh in Prabhas-starrer 'Adipurush'.
