Anu Emmanuel, the charming actress has been replaced by a newcomer, in the upcoming Dulquer Salmaan-Amal Neerad. Rumour mills suggest that Anu Emmanuel has been replaced by debutante Karthika.
Earlier, some major portions of the movie, which features Dulquer Salmaan and Anu Emmanuel, were filmed in Kottayam. Now, the team is reshooting those portions with Karthika, who is the daughter of a popular cinematographer.
The reason behind Anu Emmanuel's sudden exit from the prestigious project has not been revealed yet. If the reports are to be true, she quit the project, following her fallout with the production team regarding the call sheet.
Anu Emmanuel, who made her lead role debut with Nivin Pauly starrer Action Hero Biju, was the first choice for the female lead in Dulquer Salmaan's Charlie. But Anu turned down the offer, as she was busy with her final exams.
The audiences were eagerly waiting to watch the actress with Dulquer Salmaan in the Amal Neerad movie. But, the rumour mills suggest that Anu is no more a part of the project. However, the team hasn't confirmed the reports yet.
The untitled movie, which is scripted by Paavada fame Shibin Francis, is said to be a ligh-hearted romantic comedy. The project is produced by film-maker Anwar Rasheed, under the banner Anwar Rasheed Entertainment.
