Karan Johar is set to remake the Tamil action-drama "Vettai" in Hindi, a first for the filmmaker. He promises a lot of heroism, humour and great scope for music in the movie.
"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," Karan said in a statement.
"The film will have a lot of heroism, humour and great scope for music. It's going to be a commercial potboiler and one of the few films with a pan-India appeal," he said.
"We are in discussions with a couple of directors and actors. Things should be finalised sooner rather than later. There were many rumours in the past about the film and the star cast. I don't know about the history of the film but now I am part of it," he added.
