Pritthviraj, Vidya Balan in Kamala Das biopic

Vidya Balan starring Aami, the biopic of legendary writer Kamala Surayya, will not start rolling in November. As per the latest updates, the shoot of Aami has been postponed to December.
The movie, which is written and directed by senior film-maker Kamal, was originally supposed to start rolling on September 25. But it was later postponed to November last week, due to Vidya Balan’s illness.
On choosing Vidya Balan to play the role, the director says, “There are no two opinions about Vidya when it comes to talent. And having an actress like her on board will make the film appealing to the audience outside Kerala as well.” The untitled movie, which will be made in Malayalam and English, will probably be the first exclusive biopic on a woman in Malayalam cinema, where biopics themselves are a rarity.
According to the sources, the team has decided to postpone the shoot to December. If things fall in place, the highly anticipated project will go on floors on December 18th, Sunday.
Aami, which stars Vidya Balan in the role of Kamala Surayya, will be released as two different parts. Interestingly, Vidya is also learning Malayalam for the movie, as she wants to dub on her own.
The movie, which will be shot at the various locations of Kerala, Mumbai, and Calcutta, will also have young actor Prithviraj in a key role. Murali Gopy will appear as Kamala’s husband Madhava Das.
Anoop Menon is also playing a pivotal role in the movie, which also marks the Mollywood debut of veteran Hindi lyricist Gulzar. The movie, which is produced by PT Raphel, will hit the theatres by 2017 end.
