Actor Aditya Roy Kapur is all set to reprise the role of south actor Arun Vijay in the Hindi remake of the 2019 Tamil hit action-thriller Thadam.
In the yet-to-titled film, Aditya will be seen in a double role for the first time. The film will be directed by debutant Vardhan Ketkar and produced by Bhushan Kumar and Murad Khetani. The filming will begin in September. The makers of the film took to Twitter to make the announcement.
Based on the true event, Thadam is an investigative thriller that revolves around a murder case where the cops find two probable suspects, who look alike but do not know each other. The film was helmed by Magizh Thirumeni and starred Arun Vijay in a double role.
Earlier, the makers have roped in Sidharth Malhotra for Arun’s role. Due to unknown reasons, Aditya has now been roped in for the role. The remaining cast of the film has not been revealed yet.
Talking about the film, Aditya said that he is inspired and excited to be part of telling such an interesting story. Lauding the Tamil film, he said the original film was incredibly riveting and entertaining, and it left a lasting impression on him.
Further, on playing the double role, the actor said that getting a chance to do a double role is double the preparation and double the challenge, and he is certainly up for it.
