Prithviraj and Vishnu Vishal share mutual admiration for their works!
‘Ayyappanum Koshiyum’ has to be the most talked about Malayalam film of the year so far. The film directed by Sachy had Prithviraj Sukumaran and Biju Menon in the lead roles. Although it was a big success at the box office, it was after the OTT release that many non-Malayalis started watching the film and were mighty impressed by it.
Recently, Tamil actor Vishnu Vishal got to watch the film and tweeted in praise of it. Tagging Prithviraj, he wrote,
Hii @PrithviOfficial sir..
#ayppanumkoshanayum is a superb example of being honest and and straight forward…
In luv with u and ur team..
Am sure u wil b bak from wher u r..
As a fan and a well wisher…
Prithviraj replied by back by saying how he loved Vishnu’s cop-thriller film ‘Ratchasan’ and that he is looking forward to seeing more such great works. It is very heartening to see stars from two industries share such mutual admiration.
‘Ayyappanum Koshiyum’ meanwhile is set to remade in Tamil and Tamil. S Kathiresan, who has produced acclaimed films like ‘Aadukalam’ and ‘Jigarthanda’ has acquired the rights of the Tamil version. Sasikumar and Sarath Kumar are rumoured to be playing the lead roles but there is no official confirmation yet. The film’s Telugu rights have been bagged by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi, who was the producer of superhit film ‘Jersey’ and the line producer of recent blockbuster ‘Ala Vaikunthapurramloo’ has bagged the rights.
It will be interesting to see how the makers of the Tamil and Telugu version adapt ‘Ayyappanum Koshiyum’ to suit the sensibilities of the native audience.
