A section of press reported that Shah Rukh Khan was keen to do the Hindi remake of the Tamil action thriller ‘Vikram Vedha’.

The film starred Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi. While Shahrukh had shown interest in the project earlier, whispers are that SRK has now lost interest in the project.

Initially, the makers wanted him to play Madhavan's role of a cop, but he was more keen on Sethupathi's character of a gangster.

Filmmaker Neeraj Pandey is on board as creative consultant, but it is said that the actor wanted him to direct the film as well. Creative differences have kept the project from taking off.
