Sithara Entertainments acquired the remake rights of Malayalam blockbuster Ayyappanum Koshiyum recently. It is heard that they are in plans to approach Balakrishna to essay one of the lead roles in the remake. The makers have to finalize the director before approaching Balakrishna.
Meanwhile, the Tamil remake of the film is also being planned. 5 Star Kathiresan, who had earlier produced films like Jigarthanda, has acquired the Tamil remake rights of this film. Sources say that the makers are in talks with Sasikumar and Sarathkumar to play the lead roles.
That means unlike the Telugu version, there are no stars in the Tamil Remake. Interestingly, the Original Malayalam movie is available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Ayyappanum Koshiyum stars Biju Menon and Prithviraj as the lead roles.
