Aami, which is the next film of veteran director Kamal, is one of the most awaited upcoming Malayalam movies, due to two big reasons. Firstly, it is the biopic of Kamala Das and secondly the film marks the debut of Vidya Balan in Mollywood in a full-length role.
In the past few days, certain rumours were rife that the actress has backed out of the project, since the actress didn't want to associate with Kamal, who had ideological differences with Vidya Balan, who is a supporter of Narendra Modi and BJP.
But now, close associates of Vidya Balan have put the rumours to rest. According to a report by Times Of India, the PR of the actress has confirmed that she is still a part of the project and the actress doesn't have a political affiliation.
Reportedly, the shoot of the film got postponed due to the film strike that came in to effect from December 16, 2016 onwards. The film is expected to go on floors once all the issues settle down.
Aami is a big project and director Kamal, who himself has scripted the film, has been in the works of the film, since the past 3 years. The film has an ensemble star cast and apart from Vidya Balan, the film also features actors like Prithviraj, Anoop Menon, Murali Gopi etc., in important roles.
