John Abraham is all set to produce the Hindi remake of the Malayalam action thriller Ayyappanum Koshiyum under the banner of his film production JA Entertainment.
Directed by Sachy and starring Prithviraj Sukumaran and Biju Menon, the blockbuster film received much praise and was a huge success when it released earlier this year.
The film was about a senior cop called Ayyappan and a constable called Koshi who come to the Attapadi police station with a motive and the ensuing clash between the two. John himself is half-Malayali and it is not clear which of the roles he will be playing in the remake, if he decides to act in it.
“It is an entertaining film that strikes a perfect balance between action, thrill and a good story. 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 entertaining projects after the Covid-19 crisis,” says John.
With Ayyappanum Koshiyum, JA Entertainment adds to its list of films across genres that have pushed the envelope, gaining both box office success and critical acclaim.
Right from producing the cult-favourite Vicky Donor, to films like Rocky Handsome and Force 2, the political thrillers Madras Café and Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran, as well as the gritty Batla House, John has a bulging kitty already.
The actor will be seen next in films like Mumbai Saga, Attack, Satyamev Jayate 2 as well as Ek Villain 2. He is also in the process of acquiring and signing more films, which will happen only after the coronavirus situation clears.
