KJo all set to direct Hindi version of Tamil Vettai

Karan Johar is set to remake the Tamil action-drama Vettai in Hindi, a first for the filmmaker. He promises a lot of heroism, humour and great scope for music in the movie.

In 2012, Karan remade Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Hindi film Agneepath, but he is attempting a Hindi remake of a southern film for the first time with director N. Linguswamy’s film. ‘I was very impressed with Vettai when I watched it, but I didn’t know UTV was involved in it.

I’ve now partnered with them for the Hindi remake. We will soon announce the name of a young actor, who will fill the slot of a true-blue action star,’ Karan said in a statement. The original film featured Arya, R. Madhavan, Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul in the lead roles. Karan, who recently produced hits like Student of the Year and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, will finalise the star cast and director soon.
