Bollywood producer Karan Johar has reportedly acquired the remake rights of the critically acclaimed 2018 Tamil film Pariyerum Perumal, directed by Mari Selvaraj. Produced by Pa Ranjith under his production banner Neelam Productions, the movie stars Kathir and Anandhi in the lead roles.

The Free Press Journal quoted its source as saying, "This is the first Tamil film that Karan has acquired the rights to remake. He has remade films from other languages - English, Hindi and Marathi. But he is now looking at remaking Pariyerum Perumal. He has also acquired the rights of the Malayalam film, Driving License, which he is doing with Akshay Kumar and Emraan Hashmi." The source reportedly added, "Like Dhadak, Pariyerum Perumal, which means 'the God who mounts a horse' and is also the name of the lead character in the film, is a love story between a boy and a girl belonging to different castes. The movie revolves around Perumal ordeals of being with the love of his life."

Pariyerum Perumal portrayed the discrimination faced by a man belonging to an oppressed community after he began a relationship with an upper caste woman. The movie has won numerous accolades, including an award at the 66th Filmfare Awards South for Best Film, four Ananda Vikatan Cinema Awards, and two SIIMA Awards.
