'Vaariyamkunnan' was originally planned with Chiyaan Vikram?
Reported By 02 Jul 2020
The recently announced project Vaariyamkunnan with Prithviraj playing the title role has been in the news of late after one of the script writers faced questions about his social media posts from the past.
Script writer Ramees Mohammed had recently explained his stand on the issue, during his interview with Malayalam portal The Cue, where he said that the project was originally planned with Chiyaan Vikram as the hero and Anwar Rasheed as the director.
According to Ramees, the project didn’t happen as Anwar wanted more time and then got busy with Trance. Later Aashiq Abu came into the picture and took over the mantle as director. Aashiq wanted a Malayalam actor play Vaariyamkunnathu Kunjahammed Haji, on whose life this period drama was being made, and Prithviraj came in place of Chiyaan.
