Directed by Pushkar and Gayathri, Vikram Vedha is the Hindi remake of the original 2017 Tamil film of the same name. Hrithik and Saif Ali Khan took the center stage as the ruthless henchman and a meeting expert, respectively. Rohit Saraf played Hrithik Roshan’s brother Shatak, who is accidentally killed during an encounter.
Talking about Vikram Vedha, Rohit Saraf shared how he was excited to share screen space with Hrithik Roshan. In a chat with Puja Talwar, Rohit said, “I was just hoping that I wouldn’t be in a situation where I would have to walk out of this film because my dates weren’t available. I would be so upset about that, that’s exactly what happened. The dates (for shooting Vikram Vedha and Mismatched) were exactly the same.”
“Hrithik sir called my Mismatch director Akarsh Khurana and said ‘I need him (Rohit Saraf) to come and do this part because I think he is perfect for it’. That’s when Akarsh managed a few days. But then, Hrithik sir understood that we couldn’t cancel the entire schedule of Mismatched here. So the entire schedule of Vikram Vedha was pushed by 5 days. They were waiting for me to come and be a part of it. When I heard Hrithik sir himself calling my director to get my dates, that day I thought ‘even if this film doesn’t come out, I’m okay with it because I know what it means to me’. What a big deal this is,” he also added.
Rohit Saraf will next be seen in Ishq Vishq Rebound, opposite. Directed by Nipun Dharmadhikari, it stars Jibraan Khan and Naila Grewal in lead roles. It also marks the debut of Hrithik’s cousin Pashmina Roshan.
