Southern superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran, who debuted in Bollywood with Aiyyaa, has bought the rights to his hit Malayalam film Ayalum Njanum Thammil. He plans to remake it in Hindi and approach Amitabh Bachchan with the script.

Ayalum Njanum Thammil, directed by Lal Jose, was released in October last year. Featuring Narein, Prathap Pothen, Samvrutha Sunil and Remya Nambeesan, the medical drama and Prithviraj’s performance in it were critically acclaimed.

“I have taken the first step and bought the film. Now, the rights of the film rest with me, so I can be assured that nobody else is going to do it. That’s the first step to ensure that the project has somehow shaped up,” Prithviraj told IANS.

“I have started showing the film to few people over here. Let’s hope that they have the same kind of interest that I do and hopefully, I get a draft written in English that I will take to Mr Bachchan to read it,” he added.
