Vikram Vedha, an action-crime thriller film, released last year in July. In the film, Madhavan played a tough cop Vikram while actor Vijay Sethupathi featured as a gangster Vedha.
"With this great team, we are looking forward to a blockbuster Hindi version of Vikram Vedha," the official added.
Vikram Vedha had released to positive reviews and starred Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Shraddha Srinath and Kathir in prominent roles.
Vikram Vedha was Madhavan's last released film. He is currently recuperating from his shoulder surgery. His 2016 film Irudhi Suttru, a sports drama, was also remade in Hindi in the same year. The film, titled Saala Khadoos, starred Ritika Singh opposite Madhavan, who played a boxing coach. Madhavan's web series Breathe released recently and has films like Chanda Mama Door Ke (co-starring Sushant Singh Rajput) and Savyasachi (Telugu) in the pipeline.
