Anjali Menon, the writer-director, was harshly criticised by Prathap Pothen, and blamed for the shelving for his directorial comeback. The Dulquer Salmaan starrer was shelved due to the fallout between Prathap and Anjali.
Now, it seems like things have taken a different turn. If the reports are to be true, Prathap Pothen's allegations have deeply hurt Anjali Menon and the National award-winner has decided to direct the project, herself.
Prathap was supposed to make his directorial comeback, with the Dulquer Salmaan movie scripted by Anjali Menon. The project was about to be produced by the legendary production banner, Supriya Films.
Rajiv Menon was roped in to handle the cinematography in the project, which also had R Madhavan in a key role. But, later Prathap Pothen announced that the project has been dropped, to the much shock of the industry.
The director stated that he decided to drop the project due to Anjali Menon's poor screenplay. But Anjali reacted to his comments, stating that it is immaterial to respond to such allegations.
Several industry members had immediately come forward for Anjali's support, pointing out that she has already proven her talent as a writer with the movies Manjadikuru, Usthad Hotel, and Bangalore Days.
They also pointed out that Prathap Pothen's anger management issue is infamous among the industry insiders. However, both the industry members and movie fanatics are eagerly waiting for Anjali to revive the project.
