Bheemla Nayak is the official remake of the Malayalam super hit film Ayyappanum Koshiyum. Pawan Kalyan and Rana Daggubati are playing the lead roles in the movie. Pawan Kalyan reprises the role of Biju Menon and Rana reprises the role of Prithviraj Sukumaran from the original. Bheemla Nayak makers released the ‘Blitz of Daniel Shekar’ yesterday and showcased the glimpses of Rana from the film.
Malayalam actor Prithviraj Sukumaran who played Koshi Kurian (original version of Daniel Shekar) is happy to see Rana reprising his role. On social media, Prithvi shared his reaction to Rana’s video.
“Ayyapanum Koshiyum is a very very special film to me personally for a multitude of reasons and Koshy Kurien will forever remain one among the most iconic characters I have had the privilege of playing. Sachy and me have had so many conversations regarding the potential remakes of this very special film and we never imagined it would be this giant project with the stalwarts of the industry associated with it in Telugu. With legends like PawanKalyan sir, Trivikram sir, Ravi chetan (Ravi K Chandran) leading the way, with Thaman handling the music, you know this is going to be one hell of a ride!” shared the actor.
The Lucifer director also wrote, “But what gives me even more happiness, is the fact that dear friend and brother Rana Daggubati , reprises Koshy Kurien in Telugu! Bro..you look so freaking cool and you have way more swag than I ever did!”
Bheemla Nayak is directed by Saagar K Chandra. The film will release during Sankranthi next year.
