Directed by Sachy, the hit film starred Biju Menon and Prithviraj Sukumaran in the lead roles. Ayyappanum Koshiyum has also sparked a remake in Tamil, the rights of which have been acquired by producer Kathiresan.
The remake, which went on floors in the beginning of the year in Hyderabad, had to take a break from production due to the second wave of the pandemic.

Chandran is the cinematographer. The film is slated for a release on 12 January, 2022.
