Hrithik Roshan's first look as Vedha from Vikram Vedha has left fans excited to see the actor's intense avatar alongside Saif Ali Khan. The film comes as the remake of a 2017 Tamil film by the same name which starred R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi in lead roles. Among myriad compliments received by Hrithik, the original Vikram, R Madhavan, was left stunned by his first look and called it 'epic'.
Lauding the actor, Madhavan quipped how that's a Vedha he wants to witness on screen. The action-thriller is based on the folktale Vikram aur Betaal, and narrates the story of a police inspector Vikram who ventures out to kill a notorious gangster Vedha.
Taking to his Twitter handle on Monday, January 10, the Decoupled actor shared Hrithik's first look from the film and wrote, "Now that’s a “Vedha” I do want to see…. Wow bro .. this is EPIC. Damnnnnn" and added multiple emoticons. Take a look.

This isn't the first time Madhavan has lauded Hrithik for his role in the film.

He further quipped how the Koi Mil Gaya actor is going to "rule the world" with his performance.
