As soon as the teaser of “Vikram Vedha” Hindi version released, Tamil nadu based online users couldn’t resist themselves from comparing the role played by Hrithik Roshanwith original Vijay Sethupathi’s. Though Pushkar and Gayathri who made the original version wielded the megaphone for the Hindi version, fans of Tamil region are not much satisfied with the screen presence of Hrithik Roshan which is evident through their comments and posts in social media platforms. Hashtag Vijay Sethupathi is trending in the micro blogging social media site after the teaser release.
The one minute 55 seconds long teaser showed Hrithik and Saif AliKhan flaunting their Vedha and Vikram looks respectively. Fans who watched the original wouldn’t have anything as surprise except the performances of the lead stars. However, it is a treat for the fans of Bollywood who are watching the movie for the first time.
The original starred Ranganathan Madhavan as righteous police officer and Vijay Gurunatha Sethupathi as a seasoned gangster. The cat and mouse crime thriller revolves around a good cop and a gangster who manages to escape every time the determined cop nabs him by narrating a story derived from his own life. The makers of the Tamil blockbuster said that they got the inspiration to write the story of “Vikram Vedha” while reading the ancient lore “Vikramathithyam-Vedhalam”.

Thought while looking at the motion picture that Hrithik will nail it. But even after years The Super 30 vaala Hrithik yaha dikh raha hai.
Don’t know why he didn’t pulled this off. #VikramVedhateaser #HrithikRoshan𓃵 #VijaySethupathi pic.twitter.com/lwOb9YeC3C

Sethupathi expresses everything with his eyes along with impeccable body language no offense to Hrithik but Vedha’s character written exclusively for Sethupathi no can match his swag #VijaySethupathi

Hrithik was not the best choice for the role of Vedha because his expressions and appearance in the teaser are quite poor. It would have been better to cast a guy with average looks. #VikramVedhateaser, #VijaySethupathi

ruined the whole movie
The original film is Closer to reality, and people liked its story.
And this Bollywood ruined the whole story. And if the same stereotype is a negative character, show him Bihari.#VikramVedhateaser #SaifAliKhan #HrithikRoshan #VijaySethupathi pic.twitter.com/M5lJCIrA39
