After delivering a super hit remake last year with Agneepath, Karan Johar is all set to produce south remake for first time. The movie is gonna be a remake of 2012 Tamil action drama titled Vettai which featured Arya, R Madhavan, Sameera Reddy and Amala Paul in lead roles.
Talking about the film Karan Johar said “I was very impressed with Vettai when I watched it, but I didn’t know UTV was involved in it. I have 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”
The film will have a lot of heroism, humour and great scope for music. It’s going to be a commercial potboiler and one of the few films with a pan-India appeal,” he said.
When asked about the star cast of the movie he added, ” We are in discussions with a couple of directors and actors. Things should be finalized sooner rather than later. There were many rumours in the past about the film and the star cast. I don’t know about the history of the film but now I am part of it.
Karan who is known for his larger than life and high on budget movies like Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gum, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, SOTY is attempting a south remake for the first time. It would be interesting to see how he comes up with this one.
