Directed by Muhammad Musthafa, Kappela begins as a sweet romance and beautifully transitions into a thriller built on deception and judgement. The film takes the usual representation of good and evil and turns it on its head.

Anna, who plays the central character in Kappela, is likely to reprise her role in the remake. The Malayalam original also starred Roshan Mathew and Sreenath Bhasi.

According to a report by Cinema Express, Sithara Entertainments is keen to rope Anna Ben in for the Telugu remake. However, there has been no official confirmation.

The casting for the remake of Ayyappanum Koshiyum is also yet to be decided. The rumour mills have been saying Nandamuri Balakrishna and Rana Daggubati will star in the film.

Directed by Sachy, who died last month, Ayyappanum Koshiyum tells the story of its title characters, Ayyappan Nair and Koshy Kurian, played by Prithviraj Sukumaran and Biju Menon. respectively, who lock horns over an incident after which their egos take them on a wild trip.
