Actors Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan’s action thriller film Vikram Vedha released on Friday. While the box office numbers of the film are not very promising yet, Vikram Vedha is getting the support of the film fraternity. Karan Johar, Adivi Sesh, Abhishek Kapoor and others are lending their support to the film.

Karan took to Twitter and heaped praises on the film. The filmmaker praised both Hrithik and Saif in separate tweets. For Hrithik, who plays Vedha in the film, Karan wrote, “Hrithik Roshan is a force of nature… from his sinister smile to his solid swag … he is the ultimate leading man of the mainstream movies…. His VEDHA is a lion , tiger and a panther all rolled into one!!!WOW!! #VikramVedha @iHrithik.”

Karan tweeted that Saif keeps the balance intact in the film as he tweeted, “Saif Ali Khan pitches his performance brilliantly! The perfect balance of nuance and playing to the gallery! He plays VIKRAM with all the layers that the character commands with the ease of a veteran! Solid!!!!!”

Telugu actor Adivi Sesh also looked mighty impressed with the Hindi version of Vikram Vedha. The actor, who was recently seen in Major, tweeted, “Quite liked #VikramVedha Stylish n Massy.

Now, actor Jayam Ravi, who plays the role of Raja Raja Chola in the film, has also tweeted sending his wishes to the Vikram Vedha team.

The Hindi version of Vikram Vedha is directed by Pushkar and Gayatri, the same director duo who helmed the original film starring R Madhavan and Vijay Sethupathi. The film managed to earn Rs 10.58 crores on the first day at the box office. It is important to note, that despite a great positive pre-release campaign, Vikram Vedha’s opening day collection is similar to that of Laal Singh Chaddha (Rs 11.7 crore), Akshay Kumar’s Samrat Prithviraj (Rs 10.7 crore) and Ranbir Kapoor’s Shamshera (Rs 10.2 crore).
