Since the announcement of Saif Ali Khan's upcoming movie Vikram Vedha, all eyes have been on him and Hrithik Roshan.

It is a remake of the same-titled 2017 Tamil film starring R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi, and it was made by YNOT Studios, Friday Filmworks, T-Series Films, and Reliance Entertainment. The original and Hindi adaptations of the movie are both being directed by the same creative team, Pushkar and Gayatri.
The Hindi remake of Vikram Vedha's directors Pushkar and Gayatri have now explained their decision to cast Saif and Hrithik in the lead roles. They showered admiration on the starring guys, saying: "We and the producers started out seeking for the best performers for the parts. Saif and Hrithik were undoubtedly the top choices. Both performers are generous and possess a thorough knowledge of their profession. Making the scene work was always the main goal. We were all in perfect sync because they were so invested in the script as actors", according to Mid-Day.
Recently, the teaser for Vikram Vedha was released, and since then, both the public and reviewers have responded favorably to it. The filmmaker team responded to the same by saying, "We are overwhelmed with the love and positivity that the teaser received from the audience".
