The new film also stars Hrithik Roshan, Saif Ali Khan, Rohit Saraf and Yogita Bihani. Directed by Gayathri and Pushkar, Vikram Vedha will release on September 30 this year.
“When I watched the film, I really liked the thought behind it. At the time, I was writing something similar - how we see things in white and black and raise fingers. How the world is becoming less tolerant each day. Vikram Vedha talks about these things in a very commercial manner. When I met the directors, I became their fan. They are unique, I have not met such a couple. They have one Facebook account and they do everything together. I talked to them for two hours and really enjoyed it. So, I thought working with them will give me more time with them,” Radhika told Navbharat Times.
Radhika added, "Also, I had worked with Saif on two other projects but had few scenes with him. I have more scenes with him in this one and I enjoyed doing those." She added that it is a big film and she needs a big commercial film at this point of her career. "Though, I refused a few big films because I did not agree with their sensibilities. This was a big film that matched my sensibilities so I agreed to do it. I enjoyed doing the film so much that I cried after the shoot ended. I cried because it was only a 12-day shoot."
In the Hindi version of the film, Hrithik features as Vedha, a gangster, while actor Saif plays Vikram, a cop. In the original film, also directed by Gayathri and Pushkar, the roles were respectively played by Vijay Sethupathi and R Madhavan.
