Director Kamal's dream project Aami that takes the story of celebrated writer Kamala Das aka Kamala Surayya or Madhavikutty to reel has grabbed eyeballs ever since it was announced. When Vidya Balan came on board to play the lead role, Onmanorama carried an artiste's version of how the actress would look on screen as the writer. That transformation was the best thing that movie buffs got to see.
And then came the shocking news when Vidya backed out of the project. Now, the Malayali audience are once again waiting for Madhavikutty, a number of generations' favorite writer, to reappear on the screen in Manju Warrier's portrayal.
While we all are eagerly waiting to see Manju's makeover on the screen as Madhavikutty, here's an artist's version that has truly stunned us. You will be amazed too, for sure.
With her big eyes, open hair, pierced nose and a pendant that easily connect us to Kamala Surayya, Manju can be the best choice for Kamal, we feel.
This is perhaps the best answer for netizens who asked Manju to back out from the project, saying she won't be able to do the role. Indeed, it's a challenge for Manju Warrier and we can't wait to see her first look from the movie.
