We need to re-look at Indian treasure of mythology and folklore, says Hrithik - Mumbai News

The basic idea of 'Vikram Vedha' is based on the Indian mythological story of Vikram and Betaal.
Elaborating on the same, Hrithik said in an answer to IANS, "To take something like this that we have all heard in our childhood and create this entire story of 'Vikram Vedha' and to use it as a device, it's so sharp."
He further mentioned, "We have so many of such stories in our mythology and folklore. I think we need to re-look at this treasure, there's so much fodder in there from a storytelling point of view."
Director Pushkar of the film's director duo, Pushkar-Gayatri, added, "What intrigues us as directors is that our mythology or folklore majorly have no demarcation about who is wrong or right. As creators, it's refreshing to install the stories that are in the grey zone."
'Vikram Vedha', which also stars Saif Ali Khan, is set to release in theatres on September 30.
