Producer Kathiresan of Aadukalam and Jigarthanda fame has bought the Tamil remake rights of Malayalam hit Ayyappanum Koshiyum. Now, netizens have started sharing their opinion on the casting choice for the remake.
A few say that Suriya should play Prithviraj's character and Vikram should reprise Biju Menon's role. They want the Pithamagan combo back on the big screen but considering the massive remuneration of these two actors, we don't think it will be a viable project.
Another popular opinion is that Suriya and Karthi to lock horns in the Tamil remake of Ayyapannum Koshiyum. If Suriya's 2D Entertainment joins hands with Kathiresan's production house, this combo is quite feasible.
A few have expressed that Sarathkumar or Vijay Sethupathi will be apt to play Ayyappan nair character. The other casting choices on the Internet for Koshy are Madhavan, Dhanush, and Prasanna. A few want Prithviraj to reprise his role in the Tamil version.
Ayyappanum Koshiyum is all about the battle between two egoistic characters, one is an upright brash cop and the other is an arrogant ex-army man from an affluent family.
