Anoop Menon’s Zaheer Ali in 'Aami' trigger discussions
Aami, the biopic on acclaimed writer Malayalam writer Kamala Surayya aka Madhavikutty, has already attracted enough attention, thanks to the controversies.
A photo posted by actor Anoop Menon has triggered a fresh debate on social media.
Anoop, who plays a character named Zaheer Ali, shared the first look of the movie on his Facebook page and his resemblance to a current politician has fuelled the discussions.
"As zaheer ali in kamal sir's AAMI...a brilliantly written biopic on one of the most revered writers from our land, kamaladas, this film is fashioning itself into a classic ..." wrote Anoop.
The movie had made it to the headlines even before the commencement of shooting. Initially, Bollywood actress Vidya Balan was roped in for playing the lead role. However, Vidya later opted out and Manju Warrier joined the project as her replacement.
The differences of opinion between director Kamal and the writer Merrily Weisbrod who penned a book on Madhavikutty’s life titled 'The Love Queen of Malabar' too raked up a controversy.
