Jewel Mary, the popular anchor turned actress had made headlines, by rejecting the recent superhit Aadupuliyattam. Interestingly, Aadupuliyattam team took a sweet revenge on Jewel, by inviting her to the success bash.
Recently, the producers of the movie, Noushad Alathur and Haseeb
Haneef openly invited the actress to be the chief guest of the 50th
day celebrations of the movie, through their Facebook
Initially, the team had approached Jewel Mary to play the female
lead opposite Jayaram in the movie. But the actress rejected the
offer, stating that she is not ready to pair up with an
unsuccessful actor like Jayaram.
Jewel's statement was a huge shock for the entire industry. She
had also allegedly asked the producers to replace Jayaram, with
some popular 'new generation' actor and suggested to rope in Fahadh
Faasil for the role.
The actress's response irked Noushad and Haseeb, who produced
her second film, the Mammootty starrer Utopiayile Rajavu.
They went on to reveal the entire incident to the media and Jewel
was heavily bashed for her attitude.
But Jewel denied the reports, stating that she rejected the film as the script was not exciting. However, Sheelu Abraham replaced her in the role and the movie, directed by Kannan Thamarakulam emerged as a great comeback for Jayaram.
