The Prithviraj and Biju Menon-starrer latest Malayalam film Ayyappanum Koshiyum (2020), an intense drama about ego-driven brotherhood, is all set to be remade in Tamil and Telugu.
According to a report by Cinema Express.com, producer Kathiresan, best known for producing National award-winning Aadukalam (2011) and Jigarthanda (2014), has acquired the Tamil remake rights of the film.
Producer Suryadevara Naga Vamsi has snapped the Telugu remake rights, as per an Instagram post shared on the official handle of the original film.
“Ayyappanum Koshiyum to come in Telugu too. Suryadevara Naga Vamsi, who recently produced Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo (2020), has bought the Telugu remake rights,” read the post.
Directed by Sachy, Ayyappanum Koshiyum tells the story of its title characters, Ayyappan Nair and Koshy Kurian, who lock horns over an incident and their egos take them on a wild trip.
While Biju Menon played the character Ayyappan Nair, a policeman, Prithviraj was seen as a retired army havildar Koshy Kurian, who had put in 16 years of service.
The film, which has emerged as a box office hit, also featured director Ranjith as Prithviraj’s father. Gowri Nandha and Anna Reshma Rajan played the female leads.
At the box office, Ayyappanum Koshiyum is said to have minted over Rs30 crore since its release on 7 February.
Meanwhile, Prithviraj will be next seen in director Blessy’s Aadujeevitham, based on the 2008 popular Malayalam novel Goat Days – about an abused migrant worker in Saudi Arabia. The film will be predominantly shot in the Indian states of Kerala and Rajasthan and abroad in Oman and Jordan.
