As we all know, Vidya Balan, the National award-winner was the
initial choice for the role of Kamala Surayya, in the upcoming
project Aami. But Vidya backed off from the Kamal-directed
project at the last minute, and was replaced by Manju Warrier.
The actress's decision was a huge shock for the both the team
members and her fans. However, Vidya Balan finally revealed why she
backed off from Aami at the last minute, in a recent
interview given to a popular media.
According to Vidya, she was extremely keen to play Kamala
Surayya in Aami, and immediately agreed to the project
when she was approached. But things took a different turn after the
writer-directed finished the script.
The movie and her character were not developed in an expected
way, to the much disappointment of Vidya Balan. The actress had
several creative disagreements with the team, and that is the only
reason behind the sudden decision.
Vidya Balan, who insisted that she is always ready to work in a
Malayalam cinema, also added that she would love to share screen
space with Mohanlal, some day. But, the actress has absolutely no
regrets about turning down Aami.
