Rana Daggubati will be reprising the role of ‘Koshy’ originally done by Prithviraj
Prithviraj Sukumaran took to social media to announce Bheemla Nayak, the Telugu remake of the Mollywood Superhit Ayyapanum Koshiyum which originally had Biju Menon and Prithviraj Sukumaran in the lead. The Malayalam film was directed by renowned director Sachy, who passed away in June last year. The Telugu version is to be directed by Saagar K Chandra and will have Rana Daggubati, Pawan Kalyan and Nithya Menen doing lead roles. Prithviraj penned an emotional note announcing the Telugu remake, he wrote, “Bheemla Nayak/Ayyapanum Koshiyum
Ayyapanum Koshiyum is a very very special film to me personally for a multitude of reasons and Koshy Kurien will forever remain one among the most iconic characters I have had the privilege of playing. Sachy and me have had so many conversations regarding the potential remakes of this very special film and we never imagined it would be this giant project with the stalwarts of the industry associated with it in Telugu.
With legends like PawanKalyan sir, Trivikram sir, Ravi chetan (Ravi K Chandran) leading the way, with Thaman handling the music, you know this is going to be one hell of a ride!
But what gives me even more happiness, is the fact that dear friend and brother Rana Daggubati , reprises Koshy Kurien in Telugu! Bro..you look so freaking cool and you have way more swag than I ever did!
Privileged to present Rana Daggubati as Daniel Shekar!
PS: Rocking the mundu (dhothi) bro!”
