Two years ago, it was reported that actor John Abraham had acquired the rights to the Malayalam film Ayyappanum Koshiyum for a Hindi remake. The original movie, featuring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Biju Menon, was a groundbreaking film that was liked by fans and critics.
The Hindi remake of Ayyappanum Koshiyum is being bankrolled by John’s production house JA Entertainment. While it was announced in May 2020, the film got delayed by two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown.
However, as per latest updates, the project is back on track and John Abraham has reportedly approached Anurag Kashyap to take charge of the remake.
Apparently, John was not very happy with the script work done by Jagan Shakti and he has asked Anurag to rework the same, in order to do full justice to the original Malayalam film.
The filmmaker too has agreed to this and is reportedly working on the script. The film would tentatively go on floors in October this year after John completes the filming of Tehran.
Now coming to Ayyappanum Koshiyum, the 2020 film was produced by Ranjith and P. M. Sasidharan under the company Gold Coin Motion Picture Company. The music was provided by Jakes Bejoy.
The story of Ayyappanum Koshiyum revolves around the conflict between Koshy Kurien (Prithviraj Sukumaran), an influential and wealthy ex-Havildar and Ayyappan Nair (Biju Menon), a Sub-inspector in Attappadi.
The film met with positive response from critics with praise for performances, story, direction, dialogues, cinematography and its portrayal of Kerala culture were praised. It was also a commercial success at the box office.
