The actor adds, “On one level, it is an action movie, a thriller and a mystery, but it has also got a philosophical (element) that makes you think. The story is deeply satisfying on many levels. While it is a challenging film, it is also the cleverest script I have read in a long time.”

Talking about his character in the film, Khan says, “Vikram is a highly intelligent, courageous, cool and successful cop. He is confident about what he wants.”

In addition to Khan, Vikram Vedha also stars Hrithik Roshan in the lead role. The Super 30 (2019) actor will be seen in the role of gangster Vedha. Critically-acclaimed actress Radhika Apte has been roped in to play a lawyer. Pushkar–Gayathri, who directed the original, direct the remake.
