Malayalam hit flick 'Ayyappanum Koshiyum' got huge revenues and its interesting plot got everybody's attention. John Abraham bought the film's Hindi remake rights while Suriya and Karthi were impressed by the movie and got the Tamil remake rights.
In Telugu, Sithara Entertainment bought the remake rights but it looks like the project is heading nowhere. There are a lot of rumours over this film but nothing has turned out to be true till now. There was speculation that Nandamuri Balakrishna is going to be a part of this remake but he stated that he had no interest in this remake.
On the other hand, Rana Daggubati is said to be interested in this remake but he wants a bound script before getting on board. The producers did not find an efficient director who can handle this project but there are in search of the other hero besides Rana to bring craze and buzz over the film. There are no updates over the film officially and if goes on like this, people may start assuming that there not going to be a Telugu remake for this Malayalam flick. Hope they find a way to announce this project officially soon.
