Take a look:
The film was originally inspired by the Indian folktale Baital Pachisi. The story of the original revolves around a police officer who is in search of a gangster to kill him. In the Tamil version, Madhavan was the cop and Sethupathi was the gangster. It would be interesting to see between Saif and Hrithik, who plays which role.
It may also be interesting to note here that Hrithik's other film, Fighter co-starring Deepika Padukone also was initially announced to release on September 30, 2022.
