Karan Johar to be part of 'Vettai' remake
The original film revolves around two brothers -- the elder being sensitive to violence and the younger being a jobless rogue. After the death of their father, a police officer, the elder brother takes on the same job. "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," Karan said.
The Hindi version of the film has been making news since some time now. Earlier, gossip mills were abuzz that Linguswamy himself would direct the film and it would star Shahid Kapoor in the lead. Then there were reports that Abbas-Mustan would direct it with Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham playing the central roles. "We are in discussion with a couple of directors and actors. Things should be finalised sooner rather than later," Karan said.
