"The necessary formalities took place in Mumbai. Imran Khan will play the lead while Shraddha Kapoor is likely to be paired opposite him," read a statement from Rockline Productions which acquired the remake rights of the original.
"The (Hindi) remake will be jointly produced by Rohit Shetty's home banner, in association with A and P Groups and Rockline Productions," added the statement.
Actor Vijay Sethupathi played the lead in "Soodhu Kavvum" which is a story of four misfit kidnappers. The film will also be remade in Malayalam soon.
"The project has been pitched to leading actors in Kerala. Since 'Soodhu Kavvum' has a universal concept, it is easily applicable to any language. The project will go on the floors soon," read the statement.
