In the past, there were numerous rumours surrounding the remake of the hit Tamil film, Vettai (2012). One heard that Abbas-Mastan were to make the Hindi version while other gossips had it (at various times) that Shahid Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan were to play the lead roles.
But now, all those rumours can be put to rest because finally, Karan Johar has announced that he will be producing the film.
Says KJo in a media release, “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. 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.”
We wonder if the “young actor” who will “fill the slot of a true-blue action star” is going to be Vidyut Jammwal?
