Reported By 17 Jan 2018
Aami’s new poster released, featuring the characters of Tovino Thomas and Manju Warrier. It also has a famous line by writer Kamala Das, which she gave as an answer to the question, how many people has she loved. "17 men, 12 women, 6 kids, 3 dogs, one cat and two parrots," goes her reply. 'Aami' is based on the real life of writer Kamala Surayya aka Madhavikutty directed by Kamal. Manju Warrier was roped in after Vidya Balan opted out of the project. Director Kamal makes controversial statement on Vidya Balan. When filmmaker Kamal recently commented that if Bollywood actress Vidya Balan had been the lead of his next film 'Aami,' it would have been high on sexual content, it did not go down well with many. “Had Vidya played the role, sexuality would have crept in.
This was a part even I didn’t pay much attention to,”. The Madhavikutty I had in mind for Vidya is not the Madhavikutty that Manju has brought to life. It was god’s blessing that Vidya backed out from the movie,” he added. And Manju Warrier wrote on facebook “Please consider Aami as just a film and my part as just a character,” “There will be different views and political affiliations behind everyone working in a film. But above everything, filmmaking is an art and everyone work together to create a good film putting aside their personal differences. The same will happen in Aami,” she added. Aami has been scheduled to hit the screens on February 9.
