The film which is making headlines very often for the last few months is the Malayalam action thriller Ayyappanum Koshiyum. Directed by Sachy, this film featured Prithviraj Sukumaran and Biju Menon in the lead roles. Producers from Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi film industries have already bought the remake rights of this movie. If the ongoing grapevine is anything to go by, the makers of Tamil remake are considering Suriya and Karthi for the lead roles in the film.
Popular producer Kathiresan has bought the Tamil remake rights of Ayyappanum Koshiyum. Kathiresan has earlier produced movies like Aadukalam and Jigarthanda. Earlier, it got reported that Sasi Kumar and Arya will play the lead roles in it. However, Arya clarified that he is not acting in the film. Now, it is being heard that Suriya and Karthi are in consideration for the lead roles. Suriya is being considered for Biju Menon's role and Karthi for Prithviraj's role. The real-life brothers haven't acted together in any film till now. Thus, fans are now hoping this news to be true. We will get the confirmation only after both the actors sign the dotted lines. Ayyappannum Koshiyum is the tale of ego clashes between a retired Havaldar (Prithviraj) and a police officer (Biju Menon).
Popular Bollywood actor John Abraham bought the Hindi remake rights of the film. He will be playing one of the leads in the movie. The other lead actor is yet to get finalized. On the other side, Suryadevara Naga Vamsi bought the Telugu remake rights of the film.
