Vidya Balan hasn’t backed out of Aami
We had earlier reported that veteran director Kamal will be making a biopic on the life of Malayalam’s legendary writer Madhavikutty.
National award winning Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is playing the lead role in this movie titled as Aami. Prithviraj Sukumaran is also touted to playing an important role in the movie.
For the past few days, several reports were doing the rounds in social media pages claiming that Vidya Balan has backed out of the project. The reason cited for Vidya walking out of the project was that she and director Kamal had differences of opinion over Narendra Modi’s stands, with Vidya supporting the Prime Minister and Kamal criticising him.
However, sources close to the movie have dismissed the reports. It is learnt that the film’s dates have been pushed around because of the ongoing film strike. Vidya Balan is very much part of the film, and everything is going as planned.
The biopic, titled Aami, portrays the life of Kamala Surayya in two phases. She was a very popular writer whose life was also marred by many controversies as well. She revolutionized writings with her honest treatment of female sexuality and infused her writing with power and bold themes.
Prithviraj Sukumaran, Murali Gopy and Anoop Menon are playing pivotal characters in the movie.
