Dostana co-stars Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham seem to have collaborated together for Ayyappanum Koshiyum’s remake. John and Abhishek have been trying to collaborate on a film again ever since the release of Dostana. However, nothing really materialized. Ayyappanum Koshiyum is finally a quintessential two hero film that does justice to both John and Abhishek.
Also, John Abraham has secured the Hindi remake rights of the blockbuster Malayalam film, Ayyappanum Koshiyum (2020). He had also announced that, Ayyappanum Koshiyum is an entertaining film that strikes a perfect balance between action, thrill and a good story. “At JA Entertainment we are keen to bring such appealing stories to our audience. By doing what we do with dedication and focus, we hope to make a truly engaging film with this remake. This film also fits right into our future plans as we believe that the Hindi film industry will bounce back with efficient and entertaining projects soon after the Covid19 crisis,” he said in a statement.
Ayyappanum Koshiyum is a 2020 Indian Malayalam-language action thriller film written and directed by Sachy. It was produced by Ranjith and P. M. Sasidharan under Gold Coin Motion Picture Company.
