Karan Johar is all set to remake Vettai. It will be for the first time that Johar will be producing a south Indian masala film.
“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,” says Karan.
Details like the cast and director will be finalised within a week of the filmmaker actor’s return to the city.
“The film will have a lot of heroism, humor and great scope for music. It’s going to be a commercial potboiler and one of the few films with a pan-India appeal,” says Karan, adding, “We are in discussions with a couple of directors and actors. Things should be finalised sooner rather than later.”
“I don’t know about the history of the film, but now, I am part of it,” says Karan.
