Theri is one of the biggest blockbusters in Thalapathy Vijay’s film career and it also marked the beginning of the Vijay - Atlee combo. Director Atlee showcased a different dimension of the star inside Vijay and it was enjoyed by the fans. The film also featured Vijay in a cop role after a very long time.

It is said that Varun hasn’t done a complete action entertainer yet and Theri remake seems to give him that opportunity. It is also added that Varun is yet to sign on the dotted lines and an official word is awaited. It is not clear if Atlee will helm the Hindi remake. As we all know, Atlee is in talks to direct Shah Rukh Khan’s next biggie and the scripting work for that film is in progress. Having said that, we will have to wait for a few more weeks to know if Atlee will direct Theri’s Hindi remake.
