Manju Warrier starrer C/O Saira Banu, the film which
was praised by the audiences and critics, had done a decent
business at the box office. Now, here is an interesting information
about this movie, which is quite unknown to many.
C/O Saira Banu, also featured Amala Akkineni in an
important role along with Manju Warrier and the veteran actress had
played the role of a lawyer. Interestingly, Fahadh Faasil was the
initial choice for the role of this lawyer.
It was in a recent interview that RJ Shaan, the script writer of
the film opened about this. Reportedly, initialy the makers had
sketched the character as a male Lawyer and planned to cast Fahadh
Faasil in that role.
Interestingly, the script writer also narrated the story to
Fahadh Faasil and the actor had agreed to do it. Later, Fahadh
Faasil had to opt out due to his busy schedules.
It was Manju Warrier who suggested to make the character a
female lawyer and thus, popular actress Amala Akkineni stepped in
to the shoes of the character. The actress made a powerul comeback
to Malayalam films, with her role in the film.
