Saagar K Chandra to direct Ayyappanum Koshiyum Telugu remake
The acclaimed director has come on board to helm the action thriller featuring Ravi Teja and Rana Daggubati in the lead
We were the first ones to report that producer Naga Vamsi of Sithara Entertainments has acquired the Telugu remake rights of the acclaimed Malayalam hit, Ayyappanum Koshiyum. Now, we have learnt that the producer has roped in Saagar K Chandra of Appatlo Okadundevadu (2016) fame to direct the action thriller.
"Saagar has verbally agreed to direct the film and will sign on the dotted line in a couple of days. While retaining the soul of the original, he has suggested a few changes to suit local sensibilities. He has begun the pre-production work and is waiting for the resumption of film shoots," says a source.
Directed by Sachy, and starring Prithviraj and Biju Menon, Ayyappanum Koshiyum revolves around two strangers who get involved in an intense psychological game.
The Telugu remake, featuring Ravi Teja and Rana Daggubati in the lead roles, will go on floors by the end of 2020.
