Vikram Vedha, the upcoming action-thriller directed by Pushkar-Gayathri, is set to release in theatres on September 30, 2022. Starring Hrithik Roshan, Saif Ali Khan, Radhika Apte and Rohit Saraf, the film centres around a tough but honest police officer, Vikram (played by Khan), who seeks to arrest Vedha (played by Roshan), a gangster.
Vikram Vedha is a remake of the film by the same name, from the same directors, which was released in 2017. It starred R. Madhavan, Vijay Sethupathi and Shraddha Srinath in the lead roles.
There has not been any confirmation on OTT release till now. It is only set to release in theatres as of now and the digital rights are yet to be confirmed by the makers. Sources say that the directors will choose the OTT release date based on the response of the audience, and will likely declare it 30 days after the film’s theatrical release.
The film is based in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh but the shooting of the film took place in Abu Dhabi for the first schedule. Lucknow sets were recreated by the crew, which caused the budget to escalate. After finishing up the first, the second schedule began in Lucknow, in early December.
Vikram Vedha is a high budget film, with a staggering Rs 175 crore, but the revenue from advance booking has not been very impressive. The advance bookings for it had been opened fairly recently, and as of Wednesday morning, it sold 45,000 tickets overall, generating a revenue of Rs 1 cr.
According to The Indian Express, Vikram Vedha is expected to earn a revenue of 15 crore on its first day of release this Friday, which would be the second highest opening of the year. It would be slightly ahead of Bhool Bhulaiya 2, which made Rs 14.11 crore on its opening day. Reliance Entertainment is gearing up for its worldwide release and it is likely to debut on 4000 screens in India itself. The production has also confirmed a worldwide release in around 100 countries.
