Ever since the news of the Telugu remake of Ayyappaanum Koshiyum came out, it has been rumored that Balayya will be cast in the role of Biju Menon. Later we have heard the name of Ravi Teja. But we are told that the makers are still not satisfied with the role.
“The Project has been put on hold for now. It will happen only when they have a star hero in place of Biju Menon. The Producer is keen on convincing Balakrishna to play the role even though he is not interested at least for now,” a source within the team told us.
Sithara Entertainment, which bagged a hit this year with Nithin’s Bheeshma, bagged the remake rights of the film. Ayyappanum Koshiyum, a thriller movie, is set in the backdrop of the lives of two arrogant people. Preparations are underway to remake the film in Tamil in Hindi as well. Bollywood hero John Abraham has acquired the Hindi remake rights of the film.Follow @THEPANIPURI
