Karthi would be the best one to play Prithviraj in Tamil remake of my film
The biggest hit of Malayalam cinema ‘ Ayyappanum Koshiyum’ till the lockdown in 2020 has elicited very good response for remaking it in other languages
The biggest hit of Malayalam cinema ' Ayyappanum Koshiyum' till the lockdown in 2020 has elicited very good response for remaking it in other languages. Till the time of writing, rights for the Tamil, Telugu and Hindi versions have been bought.
The star cast for the Tamil or Hindi version is yet to be confirmed. However, in one of the last interactions, the director of the original Malayalam film, Sachi aka Sachidanandan, who passed away two days ago felt that a combination of Karthi playing Prithviraj and Parthiban (last seen in the OTT release 'Ponmagal Vandhal') playing Biju Menon would be the most ideal. Needless to add, the flick did wonders for the careers of Prithviraj and Biju Menon.
Sachi also suggested that a pairing of Nana Patekar in Menon's role and John Abraham for Prithviraj in Hindi also would work amazingly well. It is yet to be seen what would be the final selection of artistes in both these languages.
