It was earlier reported that the 2017 Tamil super hit, Vikram Vedha, will be remade in Hindi.  But there was much clarity needed on to who will be the lead role. After disappointed with his latest outing Zero King Khan Shahrukh has given his green signal to act in the film. As the film is a multi-starrer, clarity is yet needed regarding which one of the roles Shah Rukh is going to portray.

On the other hand, the other lead actor for the film is yet to be finalized. The Tamil version had Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi playing the protagonist and antagonist respectively. SRK, who is facing a dip in his career has to bounce back with a strong hit to be in the race and prove his mettle. Whether Vikram Vedha remake will give him the much-needed hit remains to be seen.
