Directed by AR Murugadoss, Kaththi featured actor Vijay in a double role along with Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Neil Nitin Mukesh. Kaththi revolved around the issue of farmer suicides. The film will be remade in Hindi. "Yes I have been approached for the film. I have not decided about it," said Akshay
Akshay Kumar will reprise superstar Vijay's role in the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster Kaththi. This will be the second time Akshay will star in the remake of a film Vijay has worked in. He previously worked in Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, which is the Tamil remake of Thuppaki
Filmmaker A R Murugadoss says a remake should never deviate from the "proven and tested" path of the original.
