Recently it was reported that Tamil superstar; Vijay Sethupathi has left Aamir Khan’s much-awaited social drama, Laal Singh Chaddha. It was initially reported that the Vijay parted way from Aamir’s film because of the date issues. However, according to the buzz in the BTown have a different story. As per the reports, Aamir was apparently not happy with Vijay as he was not maintaining his physic and putting on some extra kilos, which acted against his character in the film. Since Aamir is a perfectionist in all his works he found Vijay misfit for the roll.
A few days back it was revealed that Aamir Khan would no longer be doing the official remake of Vikram Vedha. Interestingly, Aamir was supposed to play the character of Vedha, which was originally played by Vijay Sethupathi in the Tamil version.
A source was quoted as saying, “Everyone was shocked to see Aamir leave the film in a jiffy. While he didn’t give a reason for his sudden exit, there is a talk in the market that he left the film since he didn’t want to portray the character of Vijay Sethupathi, after things going a little sour with him on Laal Singh Chaddha. He has ample offers in his kitty, and will do something original now.”
According to the reports Hrithik Roshan was asked for the role after Aamir’s exit. While the actor loved the original concept he is sat down with the writers to rework the script as per his sensibilities and seeing the final outcome of the way it had panned out.
The source added, “He agreed to come on board the film. In-fact, even before Aamir, the makers were keen to get Hrithik on board, however back then, he was preoccupied with another film (Satte Pe Satta), which eventually got shelved. While he had the heart on doing Vikram Vedha back in the past, he decided to not do it due to prior commitments. But now, he is back on board, and all set to commence shooting from the second half of 2021.”
