Balayya No, Venky Yes
'Ayyappanum Koshiyam' remake is one of the most discussed topics in the Tollywood in the recent past. Sithara Entertainments has acquired the Telugu remake rights of the film and they are searching for suitable heroes for the multistarrer.
Initially, several names were heard as the probable heroes in the remake. Recently, there were reports in the media that Rana Daggbati is ready to play Prithvi Raj's role in the movie and the makers are keen to cast Nandamuri Balakrishna for Biju Menon's role. But the Nandamuri star has recently denied acting in the remake. The latest reports we hear from the film circles reveal that the makers have approached Venky and he gave his nod to act in the remake.
Now, Sithara guys are in search of the director who can handle the remake well according to the sensibilities of the Telugu audience. If everything goes well, this is going to the first combo of Venky-Rana. Sithara Entertainments- Suresh Productions will jointly bankroll the project.
