The remake of famous Hindi films in South India is now in vogue. In the first three months of 2023, Hindi cinema has already released two remakes, Shehzada and Selfie, and is ready to add a third to the list with Bholaa star Ajay Devgn. Amidst all this, the Tamil film Ayothi, starring M. Sasikumar, Preethi Asrani, Yashpal Sharma and Pugazh, has made huge waves at the box office. Although it's only been two weeks since the film's release, reports of its Hindi and Telugu remake are already circulating on the internet. It is rumored that Ajay Devgn will helm the Hindi remake while Venkatesh Daggubati will helm the Telugu remake.
If the Free Press Journal report is to be noted, the Tamil hit Ayothi will be dubbed Ayodhya for its Hindi and Telugu remakes, with Ajay Devgn and Venkatesh Daggubati in two versions respectively. The site quoted a source as saying, “Ayuthi will be remade in Hindi with Ajay and Venky Mama in Telugu. The style of Drishyam 2 seems to be repeating as Ajay is seen in the Hindi version and Venky Mama in the Telugu version,” while adding that the Hindi and Telugu remakes will hit the floor on Most likely by June 2023.
The source continued and added, "The title of Ayuthi's Hindi and Telugu remake will be the same... Ayodhya. The background of the story is love for religion, but it has a lot of melodramatic scenes." The source concluded by saying, "The director of the Hindi version of Ayodhya is not finished yet."
However, it should be noted here that neither the creators of Ayuthi nor the aforementioned celebrities have confirmed these reports yet.
