Vikram Vedha starring Hrithik Roshan, Saif Ali Khan, and Radhika Apte in the lead roles is all set to release on September 30th. Directed by Pushkar–Gayathri, the film is an official remake of the 2017 Tamil cult thriller.
Despite being a South remake, the film is carrying good buzz among the audience. Not just in the North, but there is a decent curiosity in the Telugu states as well due to the Hrithik Roshan factor.
A few of his films like the Krrish series and WAR did well in Telugu. But the makers are not releasing Vikram Vedha in the Telugu version. They are not realizing the potential of the film if the film has good word of mouth on its first day.
Given the mass genre, Vikram Vedha has a high chance to perform well in mass pockets in Telugu. Also, Brahmastra did a smashing business in Telugu recently.
Maybe the makers think that since the film is set in Bihar-UP, the film might not interest the Telugu audience. But that is not the case, as the film’s subject is a universal one and it definitely has a market in Telugu.
Also, a North-based series like Mirzapur has done exceedingly well in the Telugu version on the OTT platform, so Vikram Vedha might have definitely generated decent revenues if released in Telugu.
