Recently, it was announced that the Tamil remake rights of Prithviraj Sukumaran–Biju Menon starrer, Ayyappanum Koshiyum, had been bagged by producer 5 Star Kathiresan. He said that he was spellbound by all the elements of the film and knew that he could watch the film again in his native language.
Bollywood actor-producer John Abraham has now acquired the Hindi remake rights of the film and will produce the film under his JA Entertainment banner which has earlier commissioned films like Vicky Donor (2012), Madras Cafe (2013), and Batla House (2019).
