Kichcha Sudeep to star in Telugu remake of Ayyappanum Koshiyum?
Rumour has it that Kichcha Sudeep is the frontrunner to reprise Prithviraj Sukumaran’s character in the Telugu remake of critically acclaimed Malayalam film, Ayyappanum Koshiyum.
Multilingual actor and Sandalwood star Kichcha Sudeep is rumoured to reprise Prithviraj Sukumaran’s character in the Telugu remake of critically acclaimed Malayalam film, Ayyappanum Koshiyum.
Starring Pawan Kalyan, the yet-to-be-titled action thriller is being directed by Saagar K Chandra and produced by S Naga Vamsi under Sithara Entertainments.
While Pawan Kalyan will be seen in Biju Menon’s role, Sudeep was offered Prithviraj’s character.
The team felt that the character suits the image of Sudeep more convincingly and the actor too was pleased with the offer and has requested the bound script.
According to sources Sudeep might sign to do the film if his role offers equal screen presence and significance to that of Pawan Kalyan’s.
Besides Telugu, Ayyappanum Koshiyum is also being remade in Tamil and Hindi.
While Sasikumar has been roped in for one of the characters in Tamil, the Hindi remake, which is being produced by John Abraham under JA Entertainment, is yet to finalise its lead cast.
Ayyappanum Koshiyum revolves around the battle of egos between a police officer named Ayyappan Nair, played by Biju Menon, and an ex-Havildar named Koshy Kurien, essayed by Prithviraj Sukumaran.
